Green hydrogen: University of Bayreuth develops electrolysers for a sustainable energy supply
News, 1 September 2021
The University of Bayreuth develops research on high-temperature electrolysis (HTEL) as part of the hydrogen flagship projects funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The H₂Giga project focuses on the research, development, and industrial production of high-performance, low-cost electrolysers to meet Germany's demand for green hydrogen. One of the seven “scale-up projects” in H₂Giga is the H₂Giga project "HTs: HTEL Stacks – Ready for Gigawatt" coordinated by the company Sunfire. The Chair of Ceramic Materials Engineering receives funding of more than € 950,000 in this collaborative project for almost four years.
