The SCALE consortium, headed by DIFFER, kicked off on Thursday 16 September 2021. DIFFER, together with the TU/e and a number of other parties will investigate a new sustainable approach to generate hydrogen. NWO has awarded SCALE 1.25 M€ of funding to prepare the ground for the next generation of water electrolyzers. Hydrogen can be produced by water electrolyzers that split water using renewable electricity. The new electrolyzers have the potential to produce green and cost-effective hydrogen to be used by industry and households and as an energy storage medium.
