Finding a way to generate renewable and low-carbon hydrogen is essential for the energy transition, and the method making use of water electrolysis using low-carbon electricity meets this challenge. It will notably promote the transformation of industry and heavy goods transport. Hynamics, a subsidiary of the EDF group, is now developing turnkey solutions for the generation and distribution of hydrogen from electrolysis.
The electrolyser test platform, located at an EDF’s R&D site in the Ile-de-France region, enables researchers to obtain tangible results in real-life situations, working within specific constraints and in complete safety. This test platform is also connected to the experimental platform for testing electrical solutions, Concept Grid. Low-carbon hydrogen generation trials will therefore benefit from electricity from different renewable energy sources, some of which come from prospective energy mixes.
