‘Record-setting’ electrolyser efficiencies for hydrogen production in nuclear facility testing

A demonstration trial between Bloom Energy and Idaho National Laboratory (INL), is said to have produced hydrogen at ‘record-setting efficiencies’ using a high-temperature electrolyser installed at a nuclear facility.

Bloom Energy revealed today (August 10) INL researchers have been conducting tests on its solid oxide electrolyser at the Dynamic Energy Testing and Integration Laboratory, including steam and load simulations that replicate nuclear power station conditions.

Having undergone nearly 500 hours of full load operation at the laboratory, the company has said its electrolyser is producing hydrogen up to 45% more efficiently than any other commercially available electrolyser, including PEM and alkaline.
