picture Electrolyzer Manufacturers Stake Their Claims
There has been quite an interest in energy storage recently. And as ever more power-to-gas systems have been popping up all over Germany, project planners are increasingly turning their attention to the key elements found on-site: electrolyzers. These electrochemical units to create hydrogen have been around for a long time. … Read more
picture Electrolyzer Market Overview
Last November, H2-international published a first market overview of residential fuel cell systems. This time, we will take a closer look at electrolyzers. To try and map the current situation on the electrolyzer market, we contacted 18 manufacturers, primarily from the German-speaking region, but also from across Europe and North America. Ten of them have … Read more
picture H2 Producers Show Confidence
When we compiled our list of currently available electrolyzers, we also asked manufacturers for their opinion on the market outlook of hydrogen technologies in Europe. Their assessment tended toward the positive; all ten businesses participating in the survey at least somewhat agreed that hydrogen technologies were developing at a satisfactory rate across the continent. … Read more
picture H2 Production by Water Electrolysis – Technology Trends
Splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen with the help of electrical energy is commonly known as water electrolysis. This process matches the oxyhydrogen experiments one may remember from the classroom, albeit in reverse. If the anode and cathode in an electrolyzer cell are separated by a semipermeable membrane or a diaphragm, the gases produced by … Read more
picture High-Voltage Electrolysis Possible?
Graforce Hydro based in the Köpenick suburb of Berlin, Germany, is currently developing a high-frequency electrolysis solution. It would use an electric and a magnetic field to split water, explained Jens Hanke, Graforce’s founder. He has been working on the idea in the Technology Park Adlershof since 2010. By his own account, the high-voltage field … Read more
picture Shell Study: Fuel Cells for Car Use
This March, Shell presented a new study carried out in collaboration with the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy. Focusing on transportation, the authors compared several different production pathways for hydrogen and took a closer look at the three regions spearheading global development: Germany, Japan and the United States. Jörg Adolf, who headed the … Read more
picture Germany Approves EUR 250M H2 and FC Budget
As announced previously, the German federal transport ministry BMVI has launched its subsidy program to start up the market for hydrogen and fuel cell products in transportation. The first stage of the National Innovation Program Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology, or NIP for short, supported research and development activities as well as demonstration projects and … Read more
picture H2 Kit to Upgrade Combustion Engines
Fifteen years ago, BMW had still been industriously working on hydrogen-based internal combustion engines. Over the course of eight vehicle generations, the carmaker based in the German state of Bavaria had tried to adapt conventional gasoline engines for efficient, low-emission operation with hydrogen. In 2009, however, BMW halted its efforts. Now, former employees of the … Read more
picture Back to the End of the Line?
The most important trade show of the heating and sanitation industry, the ISH in Frankfurt, Germany, showed from March 14 through 18 this year what kind of heating systems are in demand these days. Fuel cells did not seem to play much of a role at the event. Only one of the big manufacturers of … Read more
picture Energy Industry Warns of Barriers to Innovation
The who’s who of the energy industry met in Berlin, Germany, between Jan. 24 and 26, 2017, for the 24th annual assembly of German business magazine Handelsblatt in order to discuss developments in energy policy, assess risks and opportunities and develop scenarios for the path ahead. … Read more
picture Charging Infrastructure Revisited
In mid-February 2017, the European Commission approved the federal government’s incentive program for establishing a charging infrastructure in Germany. This EUR 300 million project has been open to applications since March 1. In late April last year, the German chancellor agreed with carmakers to provide a tax-funded budget for charging points on top of the … Read more
DWV: Busy Association Schedule
Spring traditionally means a full calendar for members of the German Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, or DWV for short. It is the season in which industry stakeholders meet at Hannover Messe and the Energy Storage Europe, but it is also the time to prepare the annual member assembly, which was held in Erlangen on … Read more
