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

An international technical conference focusing on the development, manufacturing, deployment and industrial integration of next generation electrolysers
Berlin Electrolyser Conference
Technical Conference - 3rd Edition
7-8 December 2022
The deployment of large-scale electrolysers is the key technological element for the decarbonisation of central industrial and transport sectors. The existing electrolyser technology is now ready for a massive scale-up: In May 2022, the EU Commission and 20 leading industry representatives signed a Joint Declaration to announce the commitment to a tenfold increase of the industry's electrolyser manufacturing capacities by 2025, targeting an annual production of 10 million tons of renewable hydrogen by 2030 in the European Union. To achieve this ambitious objective, considerable challenges have to be overcome by system manufacturers, providers of components and materials, industrial users of electrolysers and other stakeholders within the hydrogen economy.
The Berlin Electrolyser Conference (BEC) was founded in 2020 and launched as "Next Generation Electrolysers" virtual event in December 2020 and again 2021. Our mission is to bring together electrolyser specialists, engineering experts, scientific researchers and other stakeholders along the electrolyser value chain to discuss the development, manufacturing, deployment and integration of the next generation of industrial electrolysers.
The chairman of the conference is Prof. Bruno G. Pollet, President of Green Hydrogen Division IAHE and current member of the Council of Engineers for the Energy Transition under the auspices of the UN Secretary-General.
Contributing companies and institutions of 2020 and 2021 conferences:

The Berlin Electrolyser Podcast
For some exclusive industry insights in between, check out new monthly podcast, hosted by our Berlin Electrolyser Conference Chairman Prof. Bruno G. Pollet.
In each episode, we explore some of the most discussed questions in the industry with one special guest.
Our guest in this episode is Dr. Alejandro Oyarce Barnett, CTO and Co-founder of Hystar in Norway, and also the co-inventor of the Hystar electrolyser technology. He has 15 years of experience working with low temperature electrochemical devices and a doctoral degree from The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, working in close collaboration with Swedish PEM fuel cell industry on fuel cell component such as bipolar plates, as well as operational strategies. In 2014, Dr. Barnett moved to Norway and started as a research scientist at SINTEF. Here Dr. Barnett continued to work on low PEM fuel cell research, but also performed public and private funded research within water electrolysis, including PEM, low and high pressure alkaline, and AEM electrolysis. He became senior research scientist at SINTEF in 2018 and contributed to the establishment of the Norwegian fuel cell and hydrogen centre, acting as the low temperature node leader. He also holds a position as an Adjunct associate professor at the department of Energy and Process Engineering at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU.
Questions discussed in this episode:
In your opinion, what are the main bottlenecks in PEMWE?
How do you see the industry and your company solve them?
What is the future of PEMWE technology?
