Enapter Reveals New Electrolyser EL 2.1
TOKYO, Feb. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

New design, reduced size, increased energy efficiency  

Enapter today presents the new model of the patented AEM electrolyser - the EL 
2.1 - at the International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Expo 2020 in Tokyo. A year 
after Enapter presented its first electrolyser, the new generation hydrogen 
generator significantly improves the design of its predecessor. The EL 2.1 
consumes 8 percent less energy and is significantly smaller, which translates 
into a 20 percent reduction in space requirement. 

Enapter's unique approach to hydrogen generation is to produce a standardized, 
scalable and flexible electrolyser. 

"We are very close to METI's efficiency goal for 2030 - 10 years ahead: we 
produce one kilogram of hydrogen with 4.4 kW/Nm3," announces Sebastian-Justus 
Schmidt, Chairman at Enapter, and continues: "With a growing demand from 200 to 
4K tons of hydrogen in 2020, to 300K tons in 2030, decentralized systems with 
no hydrogen transportation cost will make a huge difference."

A more compact EL2.1 allows system integrators to deploy the modular 
electrolysers in all kinds of applications including energy storage, 
Power-to-X, refuelling, or other industrial uses. Due to the lower operating 
and standby power consumption, the energy-efficiency and cost-effectiveness of 
customers' overall solutions improve.

Enapter also published the latest version of its software defined Energy 
Management System (EMS) that further simplifies and quickens integration of 
modules. The EL 2.1 is the first system that is natively using the EMS, 
enabling the electrolyser into any kind of system setup. The software renders 
energy systems more efficient, reliable and sustainable through advances in 
connectivity, data analytics and flow management using industry-grade security 
via the Enapter Cloud. Schmidt is confident, "hydrogen and the Japanese concept 
of Society 5.0 belong together. Autonomy based on Big Data, AI and IoT will 
drive the hydrogen energy infrastructure. Our modular Electrolyser and software 
approach will play a part in it," he adds.

Enapter is showcasing the EL 2.1 from Wednesday, February 26 to Friday, 
February 28 at the FC Expo at booth W20-78, West Hall 4F.
