Marcus’s research focuses on metal hydride solid state hydrogen technology for primarily stationary applications, and mobile applications where weight is not an issue (such as forklifts). The main aim is to produce a solid-state hydrogen store integrated with a PEM fuel cell which incorporates a passive heat management system. The intention is to improve the overall fuel cell system efficiency, while benchmarking the performance of the store with current compressed storage technologies.
His main areas of interest are:
- Metal hydride storage
- Heat transfer
- Simulation and modelling
