Session 5: Innovative hydrogen Storage and carrier solutions: What are the obstacles? Where is the business case?

Energy Storage R&D Scientist, JRC, European Commission

Laura Bravo Diaz is a scientific officer at the Energy Storage unit of the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC). Her research activities focus on the evaluation of the current state-of-the-art of hydrogen production, distribution and storage technologies. She has been collaborating with Imperial College London as a postdoctoral research associate since 2018, where she investigated the thermal management and safety aspects of lithium-ion batteries. Prior to joining Imperial College London, Laura worked as a research fellow in hydrogen storage technologies in the JRC for 4 years. During that time, she completed her Ph.D. in Chemistry from University of Glasgow. Before pursuing her Ph.D. Laura spent 3 years in the renewable energy R&D industry. She was awarded a M.Eng. degree in Chemical Engineering from University of Cantabria in 2010.
