Feasibility study on hydrogen production successfully wrapped up


We have conducted a feasibility study for a major player in the energy sector, focusing on an electrolyzer that facilitates the production of what's commonly referred to as green hydrogen and oxygen through water electrolysis. Green hydrogen, also known as clean or renewable hydrogen (RFNBO – Renewable Fuel of Non-Biological Origin), is derived from water electrolysis, powered exclusively by electricity sourced from renewable sources. Notably, this process emits no greenhouse gases during production. We compared two main technological approaches for the electrolyzer: alkaline electrolysis versus proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysis. Following our assessment, we recommended the more suitable option, along with a specific subtype tailored to our client's needs.

The landscape of renewable hydrogen policy in the EU has been rapidly evolving. In 2022, the European Commission introduced the REPowerEU strategy, outlining ambitious targets for hydrogen production from renewable sources by 2030. This strategic move aligns with the overarching aim of achieving climate neutrality by 2050. RFNBO hydrogen emerges as a prized and versatile resource for the future, poised to play a pivotal role in various sectors. Its applications span from the production of liquid fuels to serving as fuel for hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).
