Cost-effective on-site green hydrogen production and use cases
The world has reached a turning point in our understanding of energy. For an energy system transformation based on variable renewables, the energy carrier hydrogen is an extremely versatile solution. It allow for complete green energy independence and security in all sectors: power, heating and cooling and transport. The future of energy will look very different from centralized energy systems of the past. A multitude of solutions at very large to very small scale will satisfy energy needs in distributed energy systems. Particularly small and medium sized Power-to-X solutions will quickly become competitive and have an important role. To make energy networks work in future, secure and reliable interconnection is everything. The need of smooth interconnection with flexible software is crucial and open-source approaches needs to be discussed to allow to connect all partners in a decentralized and intelligent energy world.
Thomas Chrometzka is in a strategic role overseeing market and business development at Enapter. Enapter is in the heart of decentralized green hydrogen production leveraging anion exchange membrane (AEM) technology. Enapter is scaling the production of small to mid-scale electrolyser systems and developing software-based energy management systems as a key enabler of wide-spread deployment. Thomas Chrometzka has a 10+ year background in the solar industry and international development. Based in Bangkok he used to work with governments in Asia, a major hydrogen growth region, and co-founded the smart energy start-up support initiative New Energy Nexus Southeast Asia.
