GE Vernova and Next Hydrogen sign MoU to integrate electrolysis technology with power systems to produce green hydrogen
GE Vernova’s Power Conversion business and Next Hydrogen Solutions Inc. have signed a memorandum of understanding to integrate Next Hydrogen’s electrolysis technology with Power Conversion’s power systems offerings to produce green hydrogen.
The integration of GE Vernova’s power conversion technology provides Next Hydrogen water electrolyzers with direct current (DC) power sourced from renewable energy, including solar, wind, and hydro. GE Vernova’s Power Conversion will integrate DC power supplies along with power quality such as synchronous condensers, energy storage, motors and drives for compression and water, and controls with Energy Management (EMS).
In its inaugural phase, GE Vernova and Next Hydrogen plan to pioneer advanced power systems that align with the forthcoming generation of Next Hydrogen electrolyzers, which are scheduled to launch in 2024. This collaborative effort will encompass installation, testing, and the integration of a Next Hydrogen water electrolyzer with a power supply designed and fabricated by GE Vernova.
Subsequent phases of this partnership will focus on near-term market demonstrations and deployments, paving the way for expanded large-scale commercial green hydrogen initiatives.
GE Vernova is a planned, purpose-built global energy company that includes Power, Wind, and Electrification segments and is supported by its accelerator businesses of Advanced Research, Consulting Services, and Financial Services.
