Why High Temperature Electrolysis ?
Hydrogen and electricity have the potential to become the principal, interlinked energy carriers in a future sustainable energy economy. Together they can provide a unique pathway for gradually becoming progressively less dependent on fossil fuels, reducing greenhouse gas and pollutant emissions and increasing the contribution of renewable energy sources.
In the long term, hydrogen will play a key role in adapting energy supply to energy demand as hydrogen has the potential for large-scale, even seasonal, energy storage.
This will need very high energy converters if this relatively high cost and scarce electricity is not be wasted.
