Electrolyzer Testing

Tools required to commercialize alternative energy technologies


Hydrogen production is in the center of the energy roadmaps in many regions of the world. The mobility sector is depending on the availability of green hydrogen and therefore electrolyzer technologies are playing a vital role at AVL.

With a clear commitment to fuel cell technologies we have expanded our expertise and solution portfolio into that area. AVL follows an holistic approach from simulation to stack testing with our partner Greenlight Innovation. 

Electrolysis technology is now at a high level of maturity for alkaline or polymer electrolyte (PEM) and is thus ready for industrial use.

The Canadian company Greenlight Innovation, the world's leading supplier of testing and production equipment for hydrogen fuel cells, electrolyzers, has been developing test rigs for this for some time. 

Greenlight Innovation and AVL are combining their expertise to develop a fully integrated product line for testing fuel cell systems.
