Southern California Gas (SoCalGas) and H2U Technologies have joined forces to test a new type of PEM electrolyser that can be stacked to produce 80 kilograms of green hydrogen a day at a low cost.

Dubbed Gramme 50, the new electrolyser is designed to be built in 200 kilowatt blocks that can be stacked to produce as much green hydrogen to power up to 80 homes per day in a microgrid. The blocks can be manufactured in large numbers and added at any time to match hydrogen demand.
