Award of EUR 1 million (US$1.2m) grant for H2Station® technology development
Nel Hydrogen, a subsidiary of Nel ASA has been awarded a R&D grant of EUR 1 million (US$1.2m) from the Danish Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP) for continued H2Station® hydrogen technology development.
”We are pleased to receive continued support from the Danish EUDP program for our H2Station® fueling technology. The support will contribute to our continued efforts in advancing the technology and reducing cost of dispensed hydrogen,” states Jacob Krogsgaard, Senior Vice President of Nel Hydrogen Solutions.
Nel’s H2Station boasts three times the production capacity of comparable hydrogen units, but uses a third of the space (10 square metres). The system has been created with the requirements of installation even in smaller fuel stations. At peak capacity it can produce up to 100 kg of hydrogen in 3 hours, allowing a flexible scaling of capacity as demand grows.
Storage can be sized to address demand of up to 200 kg per day for cars, up to 500 kg per day for buses, trucks, and other hydrogen supply configurations.
EUDP funding is awarded to support development and demonstration of new energy technologies and related research, upon a thorough third-party evaluation process. The EUDP support for Nel efforts on advancing H2Station technology is therefore a recognition of the relevance of hydrogen fuelling in contributing to achieving Danish environmental goals.
