Bipolar plates and multi-stage forming process

Hydrogen addresses the main challenges towards a sustainable energy transition, but there are major problems that must be tackled. They include costs, efficiency and suitability for series production. Combining the expertise needed for large-scale implementation, CellForm develops the production of the key component of electrolysers and fuel cells, the bipolar plate, in order to disruptively address the current deficits of green hydrogen technology.

Laying the foundation for efficient green hydrogen production

When it comes to bringing down the costs of green hydrogen production, maximizing plant efficiency is key. Compressors and electrolyzers represent a large portion of a plant’s total power consumption. By engaging with the manufacturers of these equipment assets early in the design process, operators can reduce OPEX and improve project economics.

Hydrogen: the imperfect but essential ingredient of a renewable energy system

Generation of hydrogen from renewables has the potential to bypass grid-development bottlenecks, enable energy to be transported to the place where it is required and allow multi-day and even seasonal energy storage in the form of hydrogen gas or hydrogen carriers. These functions have led many to herald hydrogen as THE essential ingredient of a renewable energy system.

Five drivers of cost reduction in green hydrogen production

Green hydrogen is the key to making our major industries more sustainable. For a long time, it was thought to be an unaffordable solution, but society has started to realize that there are no real alternatives if we want to stop climate change. Recent geopolitical developments have only accelerated this realization. The good news is that the cost of green hydrogen will soon start to drop – and in the long run the price will likely fall even below today’s fossil alternatives.

Producing green hydrogen on a gigawatt scale

In order to achieve the 2030 climate targets, a significant jump in scale is required in the production of green hydrogen. The current production facilities have a capacity of megawatts, while we should have gigawatt installations up and running within eight years. But what do those green hydrogen plants on a gigawatt scale look like, and what would they cost? An ISPT-led consortium made a promising conceptual design, almost halving the capex for a hydrogen plant.
