High-Performance PEM Electrolyzer for Cost-effective Grid Balancing Applications –HPEM2GAS
FCH JU project HPEM2GAS to reduce costs of electrolyser for grid support
FCH JU recently signed a Grant Agreement for project HPEM2GAS which developed a low-cost PEM electrolyser optimised for grid management. Reduced costs were achieved by incorporating smarter Balance of Plant (BoP) and lower cost Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) stack technology targeting increased current densities and improved lifetime while maintaining state-of-art performance and safety standards. The project is concluded with a six month power- to- gas field test of an advanced 180 kW PEM electrolyser capable of reaching 300 kW in transient mode.
