Demonstration of a large-scale (min. 20MW) electrolyser for converting renewable energy to hydrogen

The project should aim at demonstrating electrolyser technologies beyond actual state-of-the-art producing hydrogen with favourable economic conditions, e.g. upstream of the point a wind park is connected to the grid, when power prices are low, when additional revenue can be generated by providing high value grid balancing services and where the renewable character of the hydrogen can be valorised. One of the main scopes of this call is to develop a new large-scale electrolyser of minimum 20 MW of sufficiently rapid response time (of the order of a few seconds) from hot standby mode and to  minimize the footprint of the electrolyser with a single balance of plant including all required electrolysis utilities such as water purification.
