Energy storage in batteries or chemical fuels such as hydrogen or synthetic natural gas (produced through water electrolysis) will be crucial to the worldwide large scale deployment of fluctuating renewable energies.
As the use of renewable energies grow and technologies mature, the market for storage will gradually increase, offering strong first-mover advantages to a range of potential stakeholders.
Among the different technologies that can be deployed as energy storage, Redox flow batteries and electrochemical generation of hydrogen have been identified as “strategic”
At De Nora, we are therefore focusing our R&D on:
Regarding water electrolysis, strong efforts are currently being made on Alkaline Water Electrolysis for medium – large scale installations (> ≈ 50 Nm³/h as hydrogen generation capacity).
Successful Electrode Results Strengthen De Nora and AFC Energy’s Commitment to Joint Development Agreement
AFC Energy (AIM: AFC), a leading provider of hydrogen power generation technologies, today confirms it has achieved a milestone continuous twelve months operation of its fuel cell electrode, developed in partnership with Industrie De Nora S.p.A ("De Nora"), and is on track to achieve targeted electrode longevity.
Aiming to accelerate growth by adopting a stronger Corporate Structure
