GigaWatt electrolyser

The race for a position in the global electrolysis market


The electrolysis market is one of the fastest growing markets of the energy transition, as water electrolysis is the key technology for producing green hydrogen. In particular it is expected to play a key role in the electrification and decarbonization of the process industry, where hy­drogen will be relevant both as energy carrier and as feedstock.

Current estimations predict a global installed electrolysis capacity of approximately 145 GW by the year 2030. This implies an incredible extensive expansion of the market where currently less than a gigawatt capacity is installed. It also represents a huge opportunity for the Dutch manufacturing industry to develop a strong electrolysis cluster and realise economic growth.

In the vision of ISPT, collaborative de­velopment is key here. Together with TNO and FME, ISPT is developing plans to boost the deve­lopment of technology for electrolysis within the Dutch manufacturing industry. In this article, Lotte van der Velde, Roald Suurs (TNO), Jelle Blekxtoon (FME), Carol Xiao (ISPT) and Tony van Waveren (ISPT) explain how.

Mass manufacturing of electrolysers has to start now
