Alkaline electrolysis

Electrolysers convert water into hydrogen and oxygen gas, throuh the application of a direct current, by an electrochemical process. Alkaline electrolysers, where the electrolyte is a KOH solution, operated at pressure offer an economic and competitive low carbon hydrogen production method.



Electrolysers could provide grid services, helping the energy transition, specially considering an electricity mix with high renewables penetration. Conversion of electricity to hydrogen offers also several applications for the product (hydrogen in mobility, industrial use of the hydrogen).
