Comparison is made with three other alternatives for hydrogen storage systems, from which metal hydrides seem to exhibit the most convenient properties. The various factors involved in the hydride selection are analyzed. A minimum hydrogen content (wt %) of 6 - 7% is shown to be essential in choosing the appropriate hydride, which excludes most metal - hydrogen systems. Considering some other factors, it is concluded that the only suitable systems are certain magnesium-alloy hydrides. Recent research done in this field is reviewed.
