The revamped manufacturing process can make onsite hydrogen generation an affordable reality for a multitude of applications worldwide, including energy storage, backup power, power-to-heat, industrial hydrogen production and hydrogen-based mobility.

“This new facility marks a major milestone for us” said Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, Chairman of Enapter. “Our mission is to make green hydrogen generation cheaper than fossil fuels. As we look ahead, this process will help us mass produce our electrolysers for projects around the world. This is a crucial step into making hydrogen electrolysers into a standardised, valuable commodity that can compete with outdated legacy energy sources.”

Hydrogen generation has the potential to play a key role in the clean energy transition but has been limited by cost and scalability. Enapter’s EL 2.0 electrolyser addresses these challenges through its patented Anion Exchange Membrane (AEM) technology. With a simple balance of plant and no noble metals needed, Enapter’s AEM reduces costs and increases lifetime performance of hydrogen generation. Serial fabrication allows Enapter to deploy the current EL 2.0 hydrogen generator to an even larger customer base while creating capacity for the forthcoming EL 2.1 product.

As a stackable system, facilities of all sizes use the EL 2.0. Current applications generating hydrogen from Enapter electrolysers include island mini grids, seasonal energy storage in the Alps, residential heating in the Netherlands, renewable methane production in Australia, nitrogen purification in Portugal, fuel cell drone refueling in China and many more.
