Fuel cells and hydrogen for Europe’s future

    Hydrogenics Corporation is a global innovation leader with over 60 years of experience in helping businesses shift power to renewable hydrogen.

    The company’s pure hydrogen and fuel cells solutions carry a wide range of potential applications. As energy systems across the globe undergo a fundamental transformation to increase the quality of air and decrease their dependency on oil, coal and gas, renewable hydrogen is emerging as a clean and everlasting solution.

    What is hydrogen used for?

    Applications for Hydrogenics’ products include industrial processes, hydrogen refuelling stations and power plants, urban transit buses and commercial fleets, and energy storage. Hydrogenics provides pure hydrogen and fuel cell solutions, and has delivered hundreds of electrolyser systems for a broad variety of industries, including:

    • Ammonia production plants;
    • Oil refineries;
    • Industrial manufacturing plants (including steel and semi-conductors);
    • Power plants; and
    • The food industry (for hydrogenation of oils).

    In this booklet, Hydrogenics details how its innovative electrolysers act very quickly to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, which makes them an attractive solution for grid balancing services in the power sector.

    Where are vehicles with fuel cells in the European market?

    The booklet highlights Europe’s transition towards battery electric vehicles, and the role that the European Commission’s Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking has played in driving the greater uptake of this technology.

    It also discusses Hydrogenics’ partnership with Alstom Transport in Germany, where the companies are working to decarbonise light rail commuter trains, and offers more detail on how worldwide commitments to decarbonisation and cleaner energy sources will encourage a shift towards hydrogen power.

    Hydrogen technologies look set to be at the core of decarbonisation in the European energy system, for transportation, fuel production and energy storage. Hydrogenics is poised to take advantage of this growth with more than 20 megawatts of energy storage plants currently commissioned and under construction around the world.
