Reference-factory.H2 – electrolyzer and fuel cell production of the future

Research News /

Hydrogen is a key element in the energy transition. To ensure that hydrogen can become generally established as an energy source, it must be produced at market prices, in sufficient quantities and in a climate-neutral manner, and used with a high CO2 reduction rate. This requires affordable, robust hydrogen systems in the form of electrolyzers and fuel cells. With the intent of launching their serial production in the future, Reference-factory.H2 provides both a design for guidance and a modular system based on new and specifically optimized technologies. This shall contribute to the economically viable production of electrolyzers and fuel cells, accelerate their market breakthrough and massively reduce the cost of hydrogen. Reference-factory.H2 will be presented for the first time at the joint Fraunhofer booth at the Hannover Messe 2022 from May 30 to June 2 (Hall 5, Booth A06).
