Integrated electrolyser and hydrogen fuel cell system set to benefit decentralised energy generation and storage

Nel and SFC Energy want to develop what they say to be the world’s first integrated electrolyser and hydrogen fuel cell system for decentralised energy generation and storage.

Formalising a new partnership today (August 18), the duo said they hope to replace diesel generators with hydrogen fuel cell-based systems in combination with green hydrogen production through electrolysis.

Such effort will see developments set to be carried out in two phases. Initially, Nel and SFC Energy will focus on applications in a power range of up to 50kW with a daily operating time of two to ten hours which can be used as reliable emergency power generators.

The duo will then look to build upon the above and develop systems in the power range of up to 500 kW for telecom, data centre and auxiliary power unit (APU) markets. It is hoped that the first products will hit the market during the second half of 2022.
