An online technical conference focusing on the development, deployment and industrial integration of next generation electrolysers

Next Generation ELECTROLYSERS
International Conference
08 December 
Technical Program | Online Only

Large-scale electrolysers are a key technological element for the decarbonisation of central industrial sectors. The existing electrolyser technology is now ready for a massive scale-up: On the 8th of July 2020, the EU Commission has announced the strategic goal to increase the installed electrolysing capacities from currently 1 Gigawatt within the European Union up to more than 6 Gigawatt in total until 2024. To achieve this goal, new challenges have to be mastered by system manufacturers, industrial users of electrolysers and many other stakeholders of the hydrogen economy. This conference brings together application specialists from different industries, electrolyser engineering and manufacturing experts, scientific researchers and other stakeholders to discuss the development, deployment and industrial integration of next generation electrolysers.
 

At this event, you will have the chance to:
 

  • Learn about latest developments and improvements of industrial-scale PEM, ALK and SOEC units 
     

  • Discuss how to further increase efficiency and cut costs by improving design, materials and manufacturing processes
     

  • Gain a profound insight into the challenges of scaling up industrial mass production of electrolysers
     

  • Get the latest news about ongoing electrolyser application projects in different industries

  • Explore case studies on the integration of large-scale electrolysers into existing plants, processes and value chains
