The hydrogen economy is an ecological alternative to the conventional energy industry based on fossil fuels. One of its key elements is an efficient and economical hydrogen storage system. Hydrogen storage in the form of compressed gas and hydrogen storage materials in solid state are two dynamically developing research areas aimed at creating an effective hydrogen storage system. Scientists around the world are intensively working on the development of new and cheap high-strength materials for the production of high-pressure (30–70MPa) hydrogen storage tanks. A similar effort is being made to develop solid-state hydrogen storage materials, in the form of both hydrides and non-hydride hydrogen storage materials. In the last decade, there have also been a number of scientific works dedicated to prototype hydrogen storage systems, modeling their efficiency and experimental verification of the expected goals. Equally important problems are the validation of existing technological and material solutions and the indication of further prospective development directions in the area of hydrogen storage methods.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest achievements in theoretical and experimental investigations of materials, methods, and perspectives for hydrogen storage.
I cordially invite you to submit manuscripts on all the above and other related topics for this Special Issue " Hydrogen Storage: Materials, Methods, and Perspectives”. Both theoretical and experimental contributions are welcomed.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
