Niedertemperatur Elektrolyse

Low-temperature electrolysis (VEL & EEL)

Low-temperature electrolysis (e.g. alkaline or PEM water electrolysis) enables high-performance and compact hydrogen production that can be combined with energy storage and transport systems. This method represents a key technology that will contribute to the realization of an environmentally friendly, reliable, and affordable energy supply for the future.
