German term or phrase: Wasserstoffspeicher
used in a text about sustainable energy investments when referring to energy storage (so that this energy can be used during peak periods)

English translation:Hydrogen storage system
Explanation:
Since you don't know how the hydrogen is stored I would not be too specific. The term storage by itself is likely to be interpreted as Speicherung (the concept) and not Speicher (the device).
Hydrogen storage system should do the trick.

(liquid) hydrogen reservoir


Explanation:
Since hydrogen as a gas is not as a good source of energy, they might mean liquid hydrogen. Instead of tank I chose reservoir, since this contains the sense of storage for peak periods, i.e. a reserve.

fuel(s) rich in hydrogen, source(s) rich in hydrogen; hydrogen carrier(s), hydrogen storage medium/-


Explanation:
fuel(s) rich in hydrogen, source(s) rich in hydrogen; hydrogen carrier(s), hydrogen storage medium/-a, methanolized hydrogen

Fuel cell cars and power plants derive their energy from hydrogen, either directly (compressed or liquefied hydrogen) or indirectly from hydrogen-rich fuels -- such as methanol or especially pure gasoline. In German, such a hydrogen-rich chemical is referred to as a Wasserstoffspeicher or Wasserstoffträger. Various translations are : fuel(s) rich in hydrogen, source(s) rich in hydrogen; hydrogen carrier(s), hydrogen storage medium/-a, methanolized hydrogen
