EvolOH (ee VOH loh) is blazing a path toward low-cost, green hydrogen production using innovative electrolyzer materials and hardware.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

EvolOH is developing a novel Anion Exchange Membrane (AEM) electrolyzer that has the potential to achieve $1/kg-H2. Their proprietary electrolyzer technology results in a highly-scalable, solid-state device using earth-abundant materials to split pure water into oxygen and hydrogen without the need for caustic liquid electrolytes.

Green hydrogen produced using renewable energy and water can eliminate several gigatons of CO2 per year for hard-to-abate sectors, such as heavy-duty trucks, shipping, airplanes, fertilizer and steel production, industrial heat, and long-duration energy storage. One dollar per kilogram is the tipping point for widespread adoption of hydrogen as a carbon-free, portable energy carrier in these and other energy sectors worldwide.

EvolOH’s innovative materials and design enable high-speed manufacturing, increased lifetime and improved efficiency compared to current technologies. These benefits will be transformative to achieving the necessary price-point for hydrogen in our low-carbon future.
