The challenge

One of the biggest challenges that society faces today is the need to move away from the reliance on fossil fuels. It is envisioned that our energy needs are increasingly going to be covered by wind and solar as primary energy sources. The fitting of these intermittent sources into the current energy system requires a new way of storing, distributing and utilization of energy. 
Decentralized electricity production provides a more economic and sustainable way to harvest renewable energy. By converting electricity to hydrogen (H2) by the electrolysis of water, a clean and multi-versatile energy carrier/fuel can be produced. H2 can be deployed as a transportation fuel in fuel cell electric vehicles, combusted for the production of heat and power in conventional heat engines or converted back on-site into electric power by the aid of high efficiency fuel cells. H2 can be stored for prolonged periods of time, without any loss of energy. 

The solution

Ideevolutie develops cutting edge electrochemical hydrogen technology such as water electrolysers and fuel cells for several product market combinations. The company offers ‘blue print’ technology that can be tailored to customer specific requirements.
When applied at smaller scaleshydrogen technology offers many advantages to traditional solutions such as batteries.
When applied in the automotive sector - in hydrogen powered fuel cell electric vehicles - hydrogen technology enables efficient and zero-emission mobility.
When applied in a large scale - in Power-to-Gas / Gas-to-Power energy storage plants, hydrogen technology can enable effective balancing of supply and demand of (renewable) energy.
Through intensive research and development, Ideevolutie has advanced hydrogen technology that was originally developed for space missions in the sixties, lowering both cost and footprint and increasing efficiency.
