Iron Power

Our Projects


Living Lab Metal Power

Following up on the successes in the Metal Power project, the EU granted a subsidy to scale up and optimize the iron fuel technology.

Lighthouse Metal Power – Finished

The Lighthouse Metal Power Project aims to develop the world’s very first 100kW Iron fueled steam generator.

Proof Of Concept – Finished

To show the world that iron fuel can serve as a magnificent sustainable energy carrier, a team of eleven students realized a proof of concept in the period 2017-2018.


Steam Iron

Steam Iron is the newest project of SOLID. It is focused on storing hydrogen in the form of iron by using steam instead of burning iron. This project can form the basis for new innovative hydrogen storage solutions.


Metal Energy Carrier – Finished

The MEC project aims to techno-economically compare different regeneration technologies, to close the iron fuel cycle.


Maritime Feasibility study – finished

In May 2019, the Martime Innovation Impuls Project (MIIP) commenced. This project is a techno-economic feasibility study concerning iron fuel for various types of ships.
