AES Corporation reserves capacity for 1GW of EH2’s large-scale electrolysers

Electric Hydrogen (EH2) has sold up to 1GW of its electrolysers to the AES Corporation to expand its green hydrogen portfolio.

The supply reservation agreement signed between the two companies includes commercial requirements for AES to order ten 100MW electrolyser plants, totalling 1GW. It also ensures AES can develop additional green hydrogen projects capitalising on EH2’s scale.

Set to be manufactured at its US gigafactory in Devens, Massachusetts, the agreement has reserved electrolyser production capacity for AES. The facility expected to produce up to 1.2GW of 100MW electrolysers per year once at giga-scale capacity.

EH2’s 100MW electrolyser plants can follow variable renewable energy resources, allowing customers to “optimise energy use and maximise project returns,” according to the company.

Speaking on the agreement with AES Corporation, EH2 CEO Raffi Garabedian, commented, “AES’ expertise in power markets, project development and new technology integration are best-in-class.”

The company recently raised an additional $50m from Trinity Capital to advance the development of its gigafacotry, which is set to become operational this year.

AES announced a deal with Air Products in 2022, to invest $4bn into building a large-scale hydrogen production facility in Texas, US. H2 View understands the facility will produce over 200 tonnes of green hydrogen per day with operations set to begin in 2027.
