Seeking for water electrolysis with a flexible part load capability and low response time
Project Size 1,000,000 € · Deadline : 2020-07-01
The availability of hydrogen without CO2-burden at reasonable costs is a crucial key for low carbon chemistry. The water electrolysis with renewable electricity is one technology to provide "green hydrogen". The electrolyser we are looking for must be able to follow rapidly the intermittant availability of renewable electricity from i.e. wind or photovoltaic. The technology must have a highly flexible part-load capability especially in the low range (about 10% of nominal capacity) together with response time to load change in the range of seconds or less. Additionally to fulfill economic requirements the system costs for the electrolyzer must be reasonably below today`s technical solutions.
