Talking Hydrogen

Hydrogen is a staple of today’s green initiative, playing a key role in substantiating new gas generation applications and the future of sustainable energy solutions. The current hydrogen market originated from the introduction of proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysis technology.

Today’s Hydrogen Push

In an episode titled, “Today’s Hydrogen Push,” Robert Friedland from Nel Hydrogen was interviewed by ThinkTech host, Stan "The Energy Man” Osserman. In addition to Nel Hydrogen's unique business model, the discussion also covered the history and highlights associated with the development of hydrogen and electrolysis for commercial applications in the global marketplace.

In this interview, Osserman and Friedland also talked about how hydrogen has become a subject of discussion for energy enthusiasts due, in part, to the increasing popularity of green transportation. The push for renewable fueling and fuel cell vehicles has attracted many reputable automakers to become stakeholders in the hydrogen fuel cell economy.

Companies such as Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, in particular, have taken aggressive measures on the significance of electrolysis technology. By producing fuel cell vehicles, they are driving the hydrogen fueling infrastructure.

Is Today's Hydrogen Push the Real Thing? Robert Friedland

Friedland has led the development of electrolysis technology in the commercial marketplace for some time. Establishing Proton Energy Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of Nel ASA (Nel Hydrogen) in 1996, he and a group of prior United Technologies Aerospace Systems employees, created electrochemical systems for life support on submarines.

Experience with electrolyzers triggered the group’s interest in identifying the commercial applications of hydrogen. The group plans to establish a company that would offer safe and reliable gas generation solutions to fit the growing hydrogen market.
