An international technical summit focusing on the development, manufacturing, deployment and industrial integration of next generation electrolysers!


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. To achieve the ambitious objectives that have been announced recently to accelerate electrolyser installations across the industrial sectors and to significantly reduce the costs of clean hydrogen production, considerable challenges have to be overcome by industrial users of electrolysers, system manufacturers, providers of components and materials,  and other stakeholders within the hydrogen economy. 

The time for hydrogen is now.

This summit is to bring together industrial users, electrolyser manufacturers, engineering experts and other stakeholders along the value chain to discuss the development, manufacturing, deployment and integration of the next generation of industrial electrolysers.

Welcome to Next Generation Electrolysers North America!
