Abstract: Hydrogen is the most efficient energy carrier with the highest energy content per unit mass compared to any known fuels. Furthermore, hydrogen is the cleanest fuel and contributes significantly to the reduction of greenhouse gases since the only by-product during hydrogen consumption or combustion is water. The high energy density and the clean consumption and combustion, free from pollutants that threaten the climate, makes hydrogen as fuel source very attractive for the automobile industry. For practical reasons low temperature metal hydrides are of interest. In this context cost-effective storage of hydrogen in reliable tank systems is a key element for the utilization of hydrogen as an alternative fuel. Due to the high volumetric storage capacity, reversible metal hydride technique is the most interesting way to store hydrogen. These materials have a high gravimetric capacity, are kinetically fast and tolerate several hundreds of recharge cycles (life-cycles). The long-term cycling stability of a metal hydride is defined as ability to keep the reversible storage capacity during repeated hydrogen charge and discharge cycles.
