Green Hydrogen: Electrolyzer Solutions for Sustainable Energy Systems

Driven by decarbonisation demand for low carbon hydrogen is set to rise, but understanding the strengths and weaknesses of each electrolyzer strategy will be key to making smart investment decisions. The global annual demand for low-carbon hydrogen ist projected to grow from less than 1 Mt in 2021 to 20 bis 30 Mt by the end of the decade. A key prerequisite to passing this milestone, however, is the selection of the most suitable electrolyzer technology, which is predominantly based on economic drivers, namely levelized cost of hydrogen. What does it take to successfully implement hydrogen projects? What challenges and developments can currently be observed in the electrolyzer sector? Dr. Fabio Oldenburg, Senior Consultant at Apricum, reveals this and more.
