Delivering improvements to system-level electrolyser efficiencies

It is widely understood that the cost of renewable electricity is the main contributor to the levelized cost of hydrogen (LCOH) for green hydrogen projects. Improvements to the efficiency of the hydrogen-to-power process are therefore one of the most powerful levers available for improving cost competitiveness. This is especially true for electrolysers that are located in regions with relatively high electricity costs or for plants that operate at high utilisation rates. However, the factors which influence system efficiency over a project’s lifetime are not always clearly represented. Without due care, this can lead to unfair comparisons between technologies, unrealistic expectations of future costs, or underestimation of required project capacities. To address this issue, this article provides a primer on the topic of electrolyser efficiencies at the system level and outlines some of the potential avenues for improvement.

Beyond electrolysers: what else should we look after?

The quest for sustainable energy solutions has thrust green hydrogen into the spotlight as a promising alternative fuel. Within the intricacies of green hydrogen production, the balance of plant (BoP) components play a critical role, extending beyond the core electrolysis process. These components, encompassing everything from power connections and water treatment to cooling systems and hydrogen storage, are essential for operational efficiency, safety, and environmental sustainability. Understanding the BoP is vital for anyone looking to optimize the performance and cost-effectiveness of green hydrogen facilities, highlighting the necessity of a comprehensive approach to plant design and operation.
