HyUSE: Hydrogen technology development and assessment for accelerated use 01.01.2024 to 01.01.2030
General project description

The HyUSE consortium (WP3 of GroenvermogenNL program) is investigating hydrogen technologies and applications with the expectation of a broad market introduction in the Netherlands around 2030. Scientifically led by Utrecht University, the consortium will focus on how hydrogen can be used to make processes that require high temperatures carbon-free, generate electricity during times when solar and wind energy are insufficient, and serve as a vehicle fuel, which means trucks and ships emit water vapor rather than harmful gases. It will also investigate the use of hydrogen in heating homes, determining in which segments of the built environment the application of hydrogen is optimal. These research strands will consider financial, environmental, safety, and comfort aspects as well as the social impact.

Project
Three missions with one stone: The Road Towards Circular Green Hydrogen Production 30.10.2023
General project description

This interdisciplinary project aims to develop a cradle-to-cradle electrolyzer system for green hydrogen production, integrating material and chemical engineering sciences with innovation systems and circular economy principles.

The research will focus on addressing the challenges related to the massive upscaling of mining operations and the increasing demand for new raw and recycled materials. The project team will develop a solid grasp of the core material, manufacturing, and recycling challenges and the fundamental innovation dynamics driving and hindering the journey towards cradle-to-cradle electrolyzers, and hence green hydrogen production.

The results of the research will lead to concrete advice to the Dutch government and the European Union on how to stimulate circular economy practices for a just energy transition. The project fits directly within the Pathways to Sustainability theme and will contribute both empirically and theoretically to promoting and creating a mission-oriented circular economy and community.
