Hydrohub scales up
An important part of the programme focuses on the large-scale supply of carbon-neutral or green hydrogen for the Dutch industry. Green hydrogen can be generated through electrolysis, powered by renewable energy sources such as wind or sun. To introduce real change into the industry, the electrolysis technology must be scaled-up to meet demand. With this goal in mind, the ISPT initiated the Gigawatt Electrolysis Factory
to explore the design of a Gigawatt (GW) electrolyser.
All individual technologies involved in the design of a GW electrolyser are readily available. However, the Gigawatt scale is new as none currently exist. By addressing the uncertainties that surround the design of a GW electrolyser, the project provides the insight needed to plan ahead and take the necessary steps to de-carbonise the industry.
