Nel Hydrogen US has received a purchase order for a 1.25 MW containerized Proton PEM electrolyzer from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for installation in the Advanced Research on Integrated Energy Systems (ARIES) research initiative at the NREL campus in Boulder, Colorado (CO).

The Advanced Research on Integrated Energy Systems (ARIES) is a research platform that can match the complexity of the modern energy system and conduct integrated research to support the development of groundbreaking new energy technologies.

ARIES represents a substantial scale-up in experimentation capability from existing research platforms, allowing for research at the 20-MW level.

NREL will be installing and testing the electrolyzer system at the Flatirons Campus and conducting applied research in the application of hydrogen for various use cases in the ARIES system platform.

This project will enable an exciting collaboration between Nel and NREL, by providing an advanced and flexible electrolyzer platform for integrated energy system research at NREL’s Flatiron campus in Boulder, said Steve Szymanski, VP of Sales and Marketing at Nel Hydrogen US.

Nel will also be providing collaborative research support for the installed system, as an important contributor toward the development of technical and financial models of power-to-gas business cases.

The purchase order has a value of around US$2 million, and the electrolyzer system will be delivered in 2021. The delivered electrolyzer system will offer unique capability and flexibility, including the opportunity to expand it to 2.5 MW in the future.

The ARIES project is a first of its kind research platform that can match the complexity of the modern energy system and conduct integrated research to support the development of groundbreaking new energy technologies. Nel is proud to be delivering a key technology component to the project, to demonstrate the flexibility and utility of electrolyzers when integrated into renewable energy systems, Steve Szymanski said.
