Reshaping Green Hydrogen Production

The AEM-HUB is a cluster of three EU projects working to improve anion exchange membrane water electrolysers (AEMEL) for green hydrogen production.


The AEM-HUB has four main objectives:

1) to develop standardised test protocols and terminology for AEM electrolysis research
2) to develop innovative AEMs with high performances
3) to optimise non-PGM electrocatalysts for AEM WE systems
4) to demonstrate 2 kW AEM WE stack prototypes operating at high pressure



The AEM-HUB gathers three projects financed by the Fuel Cells and  Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) with the common goal of advancing the AEMEL technology.


The AEM-HUB projects will push the development of AEM water electrolysis systems towards lower costs, higher efficiency, and increased sustainability. This will pave the way for larger-scale implementation of the technology and make Europe a global leader in green hydrogen production.



The aim of the ANIONE project is to validate a 2 kW AEM electrolyser with a hydrogen production rate of approximately 0.4 Nm3/h. To achieve this, innovative reinforced anion exchange membranes will be developed in conjunction with non-critical raw material electrocatalysts with high surface areas and membrane-electrode assemblies.


The CHANNEL project aims to build a cost-efficient 2 kW AEM water electrolyser able to operate at differential pressure, as well as under dynamic operation, optimal for producing high quality, low-cost green hydrogen from renewable energy sources.


The NEWELY project aims to design, construct and test a 2 kW 5-cell AEMWE stack prototype based on hydraulic compression with novel components characterised by superior performance and stability for the production of green hydrogen.
