Decarbonisation is now at the forefront of the post-Covid policy agenda of most EU countries, and suppliers and technologies are positioning to take their place in a sustainable future. Hydrogen is acknowledged to both enable wider base renewables penetration and accelerate their penetration into harder to reach energy applications, including long haul-transport, aviation, industry, heating etc. National hydrogen strategies are becoming the norm and migration from demonstration to roll-out for the hydrogen sector is expected. Given this momentum, electrolyser OEMs must rapidly scale their systems.
Historically, electrolyser OEMs have delivered complete integrated systems. These containerised systems offer minimised footprint, optimised utility integration and reduced installation costs.
The future looks completely different. Scale requires skill sets which are not readily available today in most electrolyser companies. Optimisation of these larger systems occurs differently at scale vs in a container. So how is the sector changing?
