Catalyzing the Hydrogen Economy

A clean energy future is here.

The promise of a clean energy future powered by hydrogen has finally arrived. Commercial and government led initiatives for clean energy from green hydrogen are underway in transportation and power generation. Numerous countries have announced national strategic initiatives for the adoption of hydrogen for clean energy generation and reduction of carbon emissions.

H2U discovers and commercializes abundant inexpensive catalysts enabling the world to

SCALE THE HYDROGEN ECONOMY

Why

The problem the world is facing now is a barrier to scale of electrolyzers that rely on precious metals

Today: Iridium $5600/toz, Platinum $1280/toz = 20%+ of  Electrolyzer cost by 2030 assuming NO price increases !

The Hydrogen Economy is CAPEX driven

Old World – Carbon Powered Electricity - OPEX driven  

•Carbon based Electricity is expensive 

•Design goal: HIGH EFFICIENCY –

use expensive materials to achieve highest efficiency

New World – Renewable Electricity CAPEX driven (H2U)  

•Renewable Electricity is (near) free

•Design goal:  CHEAP – use cheap materials to achieve lowest CAPEX

H2U Business Model

LOW COST DISRUPTION, 2 CHANNELS TO MARKET

 

Low CAPEX = Low LCOH

(Levelized Cost of Hydrogen)

Today

  • Capacity Factor: 

% of time system is producing H2

  • Electricity Conversion Efficiency: 

% of electric energy input converted to making hydrogen

  • System Capital Cost (CAPEX): 

cost of electrolyzer machine not including installation or infrastructure

  • Renewable Electricity Cost: 

cost $/kWh of renewable electricity supplied to electrolyzer

  • Operating Life: 

Years of operational life if machine is 100% utilized (i.e. 100% capacity factor)

  • Operating Expense (OPEX):

sysmaint + electricity
