Why electrolysers are a big deal today?

  • More Efficient: They need to consume less electricity which would ultimately result in lesser production costs.
  • More Durable
  • Simpler design: So that it is easier and less costly to set up and find materials.
  • Well-established technology
  • non-noble catalysts
  • Long term Stability (almost twice as long)
  • Relatively low cost
  • Stacks in the MW range
  • Low current densities
  • Crossover of gases
  • Low partial load range
  • Low dynamics
  • Low operational pressure
  • Corrosive liquid electrolyte
  • High Current densities
  • Or the ability to supply hydrogen to their clients while still being able to provide ancillary service.
  • High Voltage efficiency
  • Good Partial load range,
  • Systems can go through minimal power consumption.
  • Rapid system response
  • Compact system design
  • High Gas purity
  • dynamic operation
  • High cost of components
  • Acidic corrosive environment
  • Possibly low durability
  • Insufficient data as it a less mature technology
  • Commercialization
  • Stacks below MW range
