US Grant Encourages Transition to Commercializing Electrolyzer Technology

In the United States, Thyssenkrupp Nucera and its partner De Nora have received funding to develop automated manufacturing processes for gigawatt-scale alkaline water electrolysis production lines. This grant will support the transition from manual labor to mass production, allowing them to serve multiple gigawatt projects per year. Dr. Werner Ponikwar, CEO of Thyssenkrupp Nucera, highlighted the importance of this shift in positioning the business for success in the US market.

Thyssenkrupp Nucera is also making strides in the electrolysis market in Europe by partnering with the Fraunhofer IKTS research institute to develop high-temperature solid oxide electrolyzer cell (Soec) technology for industrial applications. A pilot plant is scheduled to begin production of high-temperature electrolysis stacks by the first quarter of 2025. This strategic partnership aims to bring Soec technology to industries such as green steel, ammonia, methanol, and fertilizers, where it can significantly reduce electricity consumption and eliminate the need for rare precious metals. The collaboration between Thyssenkrupp Nucera and Fraunhofer IKTS will enhance their technology portfolio and open up new opportunities in the green hydrogen sector.

The funding is part of a larger $750 million investment in 52 projects across 24 states, marking the first significant federal funding for electrolysis technologies under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. This investment signifies a growing interest in green hydrogen as a clean energy source that can reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainable development.
