The MoU provides a framework for the groups to collaborate on the application of Electric Hydrogen’s unique proprietary proton exchange membrane (PEM electrolysis system.

As well as this, the technical collaboration between the two groups will focus on directly pairing and integrating renewable power with the electrolysis system to help enable higher efficiencies.

In doing so it could significantly reduce the cost of the green hydrogen produced and thus cater for the growing demand for hydrogen in the future.

Sheldon Kimber, CEO of Intersect Power, said, “Intersect Power was founded around a couple of core questions, one of which was, what happens when clean energy is so cheap that it doesn’t make sense to put it all on the grid?

“This question has led us to our current view that clean electricity is the nexus of deep decarbonisation.

“High-capacity factor, low-cost renewable power will enable the trillion-dollar, zero carbon industries of tomorrow and green hydrogen will be one of those.

“We expect to deploy hundreds of megawatts of PEM electrolysers by the middle of this decade as we help to lead the energy transition by thinking beyond the grid.”

Raffi Garabedian, CEO of Electric Hydrogen, said, “Electric Hydrogen was founded to bring infrastructure scale renewable hydrogen production equipment to market.

“Our proprietary technology platform spans from catalyst to the systems architecture to achieve the lowest overall cost of green hydrogen production from renewable power. We’re thrilled to be working with Intersect Power to help support their innovative and ambitious vision.”

US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power

What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?

North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.

What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
