Water electrolysis for hydrogen production is well proven and has been used for industrial applications for more than 125 years. Electrolysis is also a promising option for hydrogen production from renewable resources in remote locations. Hydrogen is easily produced from water by electrolysis, a process which uses electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. This reaction takes place in a unit called an electrolyzer. Electrolyzers are inherently scalable and are commercially available in small, appliance-size equipment that is well-suited for distributed hydrogen production.
Surplus electricity can be used to transform water into hydrogen, and this hydrogen can either transform back into water and reproduce electricity or be used a source for heat generation on site.
Two potential applications we envision in the near future: on site H2 production in rural areas (along high way) & on site H2 production with biogas for farms and food processors.
