Name of the project: Elygrid

ELYGRID

Description: The ELYGRID Project aims at contributing to the reduction of the total cost of hydrogen produced via electrolysis couple to Renewable Energy Sources, mainly wind turbines, and focusing on mega watt size electrolyzes (from 0,5 MW and up). The objectives are to improve the efficiency related to complete system by 20 % (10 % related to the stack, and 10 % electrical conversion) and to reduce costs by 25%. The work will be structured in 3 different parts, namely: cells improvements, power electronics, and balance of plant (BOP). Two scalable prototype electrolyzers will be tested in facilities which allows feeding with renewable energies (photovoltaic and wind)

The project partners are: Hydrogen Aragon (FHa), Industrie Haute Technologie SA, EMPA, Helion SAS, Forschungszentrum Juelich GmbH, Vlaamse Instelling voor Technologisch Onderzoek N.V., Lapesa, Inycom, Ingeteam Power Technology S.A., Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives.

The project started in 2011 and ended in 2014.

FP7Funding: The project was co-funded by the FCH-JU under the FP7.
