DOE grant prompts push to bring electrolyser technology to market

Thyssenkrupp Nucera US and De Nora have received funding to automate gigawatt-scale alkaline water electrolysis production lines in the US. This move is aimed at transitioning from manual labor to mass production to serve multiple gigawatt projects per year, positioning their business for success in the US market. The grant is part of a larger federal funding initiative under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, totaling $750 million for 52 projects across 24 states.

In Europe, Thyssenkrupp Nucera has partnered with Fraunhofer IKTS to enhance their technology portfolio in the electrolysis market. The focus is on developing high-temperature solid oxide electrolyser cell (Soec) technology for industrial manufacturing and applications. By early 2025, a pilot plant built by Fraunhofer IKTS will start production of high-temperature electrolysis stacks using Soec, with plans to scale up production gradually.

Thyssenkrupp Nucera has also announced a strategic partnership with Fraunhofer IKTS that includes a licensing agreement for them to produce and use stacks based on the Fraunhofer technology. The companies believe that Soec technology will benefit industries like green steel, ammonia, methanol, and fertilizers by reducing electricity consumption and eliminating the need for rare precious metals.

The shift towards high-temperature technology is expected to have a positive impact on industries where industrial waste heat is generated during production. By reducing electricity consumption and relying on a more sustainable technology, Thyssenkrupp Nucera and De Nora are highlighting their commitment to innovation and sustainability in the green hydrogen sector.
