Heliogen and Bloom Energy join forces to generate low-cost green hydrogen. The successful demonstration project produced hydrogen using carbon-free steam from Heliogen’s AI-enabled concentrated solar energy system. In combination with Bloom Energy’s proprietary, solid-oxide, high-temperature electrolyzer. Through this combination, hydrogen can be produced 45% more efficiently than low-temperature PEM and alkaline electrolyzers. The high capacity factor of Heliogen’s technology enables higher utilization of Bloom’s Electrolyzer resulting in cheaper green hydrogen compared to hydrogen produced with photovoltaic solar.

Demand for green hydrogen is expected to reach 500 to 800 million tons a year by 2050, increasing from 115 million tons today. By then the market is expected to be worth $300 billion annually. Low-cost, large-scale hydrogen deployment is critical for decarbonizing heavy industry, which makes up one-third of the world’s energy consumption. The demonstration marks a significant step taken towards the company’s shared goal of replacing fossil-derived fuels in commercial and industrial applications.

Green hydrogen, the fuel of the future, and the future is here.
