Modern metallurgy has a close collaboration with many other industrial fields and also with gas production industry. Using of hydrogen and nitrogen atmospheres in steel production and rolling show us metallurgy industry in a role of a big consumer of industrial gases. But from other side, metallurgy plants and companies always plays the role of suppliers for gas industry. This type of collaboration is not new, but in last decade’s a development of powder metallurgy provides new possibility for two industries connection on the way of creation new types of energy storage systems, based on metal hydrides.Using of intermetallic compounds for hydrogen storage in solid form with the formation of chemical compounds (metal hydrides) with the possibility of sorption and desorption, provides energy storage systems with hydrogen densities greater than in the liquid and gaseous states.Hydrogen storage in intermetallic systems can be the most energy efficient and less energy consuming way of hydrogen storing in the near future. In present article the description of real applications and conditions of intermetallic systems, and possibilities to use metal compounds for creation energy storage systems and using that systems in real life is provided.Keywords: Metallurgy; powder metallurgy; intermetallic compounds; metal hydrides; energy storage
