Project description

The future of green hydrogen is looking rosy

A major global challenge for the 21st century is the sustainable provision of the increasing energy demanded by human activity. Green hydrogen, or hydrogen produced from renewable energy resources, is an important contender in the race, making electrolysers a key area of investment for many countries and economies. Electrolysers split water into hydrogen and oxygen, using electricity to do so. Of the three main technologies on the market, anion exchange membrane water electrolysis (AEMWE) combines the benefits of the other two, but it is not yet competitive commercially, in terms of performance. The EU-funded NEWELY project plans to redefine AEMWE, significantly enhancing efficiency with performance twice as good as the state-of-the-art. The new fuel cell stack will enable a significant reduction in the cost of water electrolysis, boosting the competitiveness of green hydrogen.
