Technology for green hydrogen

Electrolysers are an important building block for producing CO2-neutral hydrogen and thus ensuring a sustainable energy supply. Electrolysis systems use electrical energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. This process is called electrolysis and enables the production of hydrogen. Hydrogen is a clean and versatile fuel that can be used in various applications.

Green Hydrogen

Green hydrogen is produced by electrolysis of water using renewable energy sources such as solar or wind energy. Unlike grey hydrogen, which is produced from fossil fuels and is associated with significant carbon emissions, green hydrogen does not produce greenhouse gases and therefore makes a significant contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. This alternative is playing an increasingly important role in the decarbonisation of various sectors, including transport, industry and power plants.

Our institute is intensively dedicated to the research and development of electrolysers and the production of green hydrogen. We focus on various key areas in order to continuously improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of these technologies.

Simulation and model development: Modern simulation tools are used and innovative methods are developed to optimise the performance and efficiency of electrolysers.

Materialentwicklung: Durch die Erforschung und Entwicklung neuer Materialien wird angestrebt, die Haltbarkeit, Leitfähigkeit und Kosteneffizienz zu verbessern.

Component development: We are working on the development of components to increase the reliability and efficiency of electrolysers and make them more attractive for various applications.

Our work also includes the development of systems and their integration into various applications, whether in industry, transport or energy supply.

Techno-economic analyses: We carry out detailed techno-economic analyses to understand and improve the cost structures and profitability of electrolysis systems. The aim is to establish electrolysis systems as a competitive alternative to conventional energy sources.

Our multidisciplinary research work is helping to drive the development and implementation of electrolysers and green hydrogen to create a safe, cost-effective and emission-free energy supply.
