Project HYPRAEL aims to cut cost and improve efficiency in hydrogen production

Aragon Hydrogen Foundation will lead a consortium to deliver an advanced alkaline electrolysis project for pressurised hydrogen production.

Project HYPRAEL aims to decrease the energy consumption of hydrogen production and contribute to reducing the overall costs of the process by increasing the output pressure of the produced fuel. The energy efficiency will be improved by raising the temperature to at least 120°C.

Laura Abadía Albás, Aragon Project Coordinator, understands the challenges the consortium could face during the project. “One of the key challenges we face is the technical complexity of conducting alkaline water electrolysis at a minimum pressure of 80 bars. It’s going to require a significant enhancement in the performance of the stack and its components, as well as the entire system.”
