Bosch is continuing to dive deeper into the hydrogen value chain with plans revealed today (May 4) to develop hydrogen electrolysis components and invest a total of €500m in green hydrogen by 2030.
By utilising the company’s extensive contacts and knowledge in the hydrogen and electrolysis sector, Bosch will support the scaling up of the technology.
In doing so, more and cheaper electrolyser systems will enter the market meaning more green hydrogen can be produced at cost-competitive rates.
With pilot plants scheduled to commence operation in the coming year, the company plans to supply smart modules to manufacturers of electrolysis plants and industrial service providers from 2025 onward.
These smart modules can be mass produced and thus will help create a booming hydrogen market.
Bosch will incorporate a number of these compact modules as they can then be used both in smaller units with capacity of up to 10MW and in gigawatt-rated onshore and offshore plants – whether in new-build projects or in existing plants for conversion to the production of green hydrogen.
To maximise the efficiency of hydrogen production and extend the service life of the stack, the smart modules are to be connected to the Bosch cloud.
Dr. Stefan Hartung, Chairman of the Board of Management at Bosch GmbH, said, “We cannot afford to delay climate action any longer, so we aim to use Bosch technology to support the rapid expansion of hydrogen production in Europe.
“To do this, we will leverage our know-how in fuel-cell technology.”
North American Hydrogen Summit
H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.
As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.
With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
