The AEM electrolyser can be combined to produce green hydrogen at any scale, promoting the widescale use of hydrogen by providing significant production capabilities.
These are currently being used around the world.
In recognition of this feat, the HRH Prince William and Royal Foundation has awarded the group the Earthshot Prize which promotes a global search for the most inspiring and innovative solutions to some of the greatest challenges faced on our planet.
With this award, Enapter will be provided £1m ($1.37m) in prize money which Enapter said will play a pivotal part of the new Campus mass production facility as well as further investment in research and development.
This Enapter Campus, situated in Germany, will from 2023 look to produce 10,000 electrolysers per month.
Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, CEO of Enapter, said, “The Earthshot Prize and its Global Alliance will have an outsized impact in letting people know that modular green hydrogen production is a key solution for flipping global warming.
“The awareness and funding will accelerate our scale-up to mass production and into the different markets, helping us to make a significant dent in fossil fuel use by the culmination of the Earthshot Prize decade in 2030.”
The last piece of the decarbonisation puzzle: Enapter highlights the benefits of AEM electrolysers
It’s full steam ahead for Enapter as the hydrogen technology specialist targets autumn 2021 for construction to begin on its mass-production facility in Germany, and eyes the end of 2022/early 2023 for the first anion exchange membrane (AEM) electrolysers to roll off the production line there. Set to be built in the climate community of Saerbeck in North Rhine-Westphalia, the ‘Enapter Campus’ will be capable of producing more than 100,000 AEM electrolyser modules per year.
“I think it’s really important to point out that 100,000 electrolysers production capacity per year is just a tiny, tiny amount of what is needed to reach our climate goals. We’re not exaggerating when we say we should be delivering 10 million units every year for the next 30 years to reach those goals,” Jan-Justus Schmidt, co-founder and General Manager of Enapter, told H2 View.
