We did this by introducing the first significant advance in alkaline electrolyzer cell design in decades. Our new, innovative cell module exploits low-cost sources of energy, including renewables, while capturing the entire output range, even when it’s intermittent.
We also designed them to produce more hydrogen when electricity cost is lowest, which eliminates the need to purchase extra electrolyzers to meet demand. Single units can generate up to 2.5 MW; multiple units can generate up to hundreds of MW.
Here’s what makes this possible:
- Each half cell can accommodate a wide range of fluid (liquid and gas) flows
- We’ve eliminated common flow manifolds and external piping in order to enable high fluid flow rates
- We created an “overdrive” mode that, when activated, can produce hydrogen at twice the nominal rate
- The electrolyzers come in pre-assembled, drop-in formats for easy, rapid installation even at utility scale
