Technology & Market Developments for Electrolyzers in Green Hydrogen Production

The clean hydrogen market is poised for significant growth, driven by the increasing focus from companies and governments on developing green hydrogen infrastructure to decarbonize hard-to-abate industries. The water electrolyzer is a key component of the green hydrogen plant, responsible for the splitting of water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen using renewable energy.
There are four main types of electrolyzer technology that can be used to produce green hydrogen: alkaline water (AWE or AEL), proton exchange membrane (PEMEL or PEMWE), anion exchange membrane (AEMEL or AEMWE), and solid oxide electrolyzers (SOEC or SOEL). Each technology comes with its own set of performance characteristics, commercial maturity, and various advantages and limitations.
In this webinar, IDTechEx will present some technological and commercial considerations surrounding the four main electrolyzer technologies. IDTechEx forecasts substantial growth in the market, projecting the annual water electrolyzer market value to exceed US$70 billion by 2034. This webinar will address some of the key growth drivers for green hydrogen production and the electrolyzer market.
Key takeaways from this webinar:
  • Introduction to the hydrogen economy and green hydrogen production
  • Overview of the incumbent electrolyzer technologies
  • Current state of electrolyzer manufacturing and market
  • Key innovations needed in electrolyzer technology & overview of novel technologies
  • Electrolyzer market growth drivers and market outlook
The webinar shares some of the research from IDTechEx's new "Green Hydrogen Production & Electrolyzer Market 2024-2034: Technologies, Players, Forecasts" report, which analyzes the technologies, techno-economics, commercial system specifications, key commercial activities (including projects, established and emerging companies), major innovations, and market trends across green hydrogen production by water electrolysis.
