The Center for Hydrogen Storage Research is a research institute aimed at discovering and developing novel materials that can store and release large quantities of hydrogen gas at moderate temperatures and pressures.  These materials can be used on board vehicles for hydrogen fuel cell applications. The center was established in 2005 and is under the direction of Dr. Andrew Goudy, who has over 25 years of experience in this area.
