GRZ Technologies Ltd. is a company based in Switzerland specialized in the energy storage in the form of hydrogen. A spinoff from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), it aims at providing an attractive solution to the problem of fluctuating renewable energy sources. Its technology, commercialized under the DASH trademark, enables the storage of hydrogen in a dense, safe and affordable manner.

GRZ Technologies is in the process to develop DASH – Dense and safe hydrogen storage. DASH stores hydrogen at near ambient temperature and pressure in solid metal hydrides. It can be refilled at low pressure (< 10 bar) directly from an electrolyzer and has an extreme high volumetric density – twice as much as liquid hydrogen! Most importantly, the technology is highly scalable: by increasing the number of cylinders, the energy capacity can be easily scaled up .
DASH will unleash the vast potential of safe and economic hydrogen energy that can eliminate more than 70% of GHG emissions that reach an annual volume of 43.737 Mt CO2e globally and 4.400 Mt CO2e in the EU. The energy sector is the largest contributor to global emissions over any other sector, with 72% of share. Renewable energy like PV and wind are growing, but countries like China and India still use a lot of coal to generate electricity. And where coal is phased out, natural gas plants also take over, which still contribute to climate warming. In the EU, emissions from electricity generation and district heating represented 26% of all emissions. DASH will accelerate in particular the growth of solar and wind energy, which is the cleanest of all, as it can store energy with higher energy density and at lower cost than batteries.
