THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14 AT 10:00AM PACIFIC. SoCalGas® invites you to a webinar featuring Sandia National Laboratories, that will cover nanoscale metal hydride composites for efficient storage of hydrogen on board heavy-duty vehicles. These materials have the potential to store and deliver hydrogen at the right pressure and energy-density required to meet Department of Energy (DOE) targets. Hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicles could help decarbonize the transportation sector and reduce emissions in high-traffic corridors such as the South Coast Air Basin.


Mark Allendorf: Dr. Mark D. Allendorf is Co-Director of the DOE Hydrogen Materials – Advanced Research Consortium (HyMARC) and a Senior Scientist at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California. Dr. Allendorf is past President and Fellow of The Electrochemical Society and has received Sandia awards for research, leadership, and teamwork, as well as a 2014 R&D100 Award.

Vitalie Stavila: Dr. Vitalie Stavila is a Task Lead in the DOE (HyMARC). A central theme in Dr. Stavila’s research is the rational design of new materials by changing the chemical composition, the arrangement of the atoms or molecules in crystalline or amorphous configurations, and the size, shape, and orientation of nanoparticles, crystals or other nano- or macroscopic units.
