Sunfire to contribute to EU electrolyser capacity goals with increased productions

According to plans, installed electrolyser capacity in the EU alone is set to rise from the current 0.2GW to 40GW by 2030 – and clean energy company Sunfire wants to play a part by increasing production of its key hydrogen technologies.

The Dresden-based firm today (Jan 6) confirmed the news, stating that it has received a grant funding for the Federal Government to prepare the serial and automated production of its alkaline and solid oxide electrolyser cells (SOEC) for hydrogen production.

Gigawatt scale production is the aim here, with Sunfire stating that together with partners from research and industry it is preparing for its mass expansion. Supporting this, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is providing a grant of €60m.

Further to that, under the leadership of Sunfire, 15 associated partners will receive €33m to establish manufacturing processes and optimise systems. By using off-heat from industrial processes, Sunfire’s SOEC electrolysers require up to 30% less electricity from renewable energy sources than other technologies to produce a kilogram of hydrogen.
