Hydrogen Energy Research at Georgia Tech

Hydrogen is a strategic research initiative for Georgia Tech. It has enormous potential in the transition to a clean energy future. As an energy carrier, hydrogen could play a major role to equalize energy supplies from intermittent renewable sources such as solar and wind. It is simultaneously a key enabler of decarbonized energy and synthesized materials, such as net-zero carbon synthetic hydrocarbons. Georgia Tech researchers are exploring innovative ways to produce, use, transport, and store hydrogen.

The Direct Air Capture Center (DirACC) is the culmination of more than a decade of research at Georgia Tech to develop materials and processes that extract carbon dioxide (CO2) directly from the atmosphere. Climate models suggest that negative emissions technologies (NETs) will need to be developed and deployed in order to stabilize the climate. With several recent awards, Georgia Tech researchers have launched the Direct Air Capture Center (DirACC). DirACC will create a forum for collaborative research on NETs and DAC, bringing together researchers from across the Institute working in energy, sustainability, policy, and related fields.
