The deployment of large-scale electrolysers is the key technological element for the decarbonisation of central industrial and transport sectors. The existing electrolyser technology is now ready for a massive scale-up: In May 2022, the EU Commission and 20 leadingindustry representatives signed a Joint Declaration to announce the commitment to a tenfold increase of the industry’s electrolyser manufacturing capacities by 2025, targeting an annual production of 10 million tons of renewable hydrogen by 2030 in the European Union. To achieve this ambitious objective, considerable challenges have to be overcome by system manufacturers, providers of components and materials, industrial users of electrolysers and other stakeholders within the hydrogen economy.
The Berlin Electrolyser Conference (BEC) was founded in 2020. The mission is to bring together electrolyser specialists, engineering experts, scientific researchers and other stakeholders along the electrolyser value chain to discuss the development, manufacturing, deployment and integration of the next generation of industrial electrolysers.
