Pillars of Progress: Power – A gamechanger in Europe’s renewable lead

Electrolysers generate renewable hydrogen through a process whereby renewable electricity splits water into hydrogen and oxygen, to the benefit of the environment and fighting climate change through the indirect electrification of hard to abate sectors. The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) is supporting the development of cutting-edge research projects in the field, turning Europe into a global leader in the field of renewable and clean energy technologies.

An electrifying future

Alongside research into innovative renewable energy storage solutions, the FCH JU is moving Europe into pole position in electrolyser technologies.

Electrolyser technologies are key to the production of green hydrogen, paving the way for the greening of industry, transport and heating sectors through the increased penetration of renewable energy. Electrolysers are commercially available today, while the development of more efficient, more dynamic and cheaper electrolysers like proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysers or solid oxide (SO) electrolysers remains a challenge.
