EU Consortium to Develop Supply Chains for Cost-Effective PEM Electrolyser Components

28 Jun 2012

ITM Stack

A €1.35 million grant has been awarded to a consortium under the Seventh Framework Programme. The consortium, ELECTROHYPEM, will be a three year programme aiming to address the validation of developed materials for residential applications in the presence of renewable power sources.

It will do this by developing cost-effective components with enhanced activity and stability in order to reduce stack and system costs and to improve efficiency, performance and durability. Active components currently represent approximately 70% of stack costs so a particular focus of the consortium will be low-cost electrocatalysts and low-noble-metal-loading electrodes, primarily for PEM electrolysers in residential applications.

The work of the project will contribute to a roadmap for addressing the achievement of a wide scale decentralised hydrogen production infrastructure. The consortium members are: Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR-ITAE); European Commission, Directorate-General; ITM Power; Joint Research Centre, Institute for Energy and Transport (JRC); Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS); Solvay Speciality Polymers Italy; and TRE S.p.A Tozzi Renewable Energy. CNR-ITAE will have overall management responsibility for the project.
