Development projects for next-generation PEM electrolyzers
An international consortium of Schaeffler, Bekaert, Johnson Matthey, and TNO is working on a joint research project in the field of hydrogen. The goal is to optimize individual components of the electrolysis stack in order to accelerate the development of proton exchange membrane (PEM) technology. The consortium joined forces to develop cells with components that optimize electrolysis.2 May 2022
Green hydrogen will play a key role in all net-zero scenarios and is crucial for decarbonizing sectors where emissions are difficult to avoid. Electrolysis produces green hydrogen using water and electricity from renewable energy sources, which is why it important for emission-free energy generation.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)’s 1.5-Degree Scenario projects an electrolyzer capacity of approximately 5,000 gigawatts for 2050, which would provide enough hydrogen to meet 12 percent of the world's energy needs. To ensure this, technological innovations and their rapid introduction are of crucial importance.
