Hydrogen and fuel cells are key technologies for clean, safe, and affordable energy. The hydrogen ecosystem’s vast potential for energy producers, manufacturers, and the mobility and heating sectors is perceptible even at a cursory glance.
The challenge: Reduce carbon emissions. Climate action calls for creative ideas. For example, innovative concepts involving hydrogen can enable us all to use energy more efficiently. Renewables harbor vast energy potential, and hydrogen can be an important link in sector coupling – that is, the bridge that will close the gap between electric power generation and transportation. The major hurdle to hydrogen’s economic viability as a fillable energy carrier can be surmounted by taking a holistic approach to the hydrogen event chain.
Our insight into the hydrogen event chain sweeps from front to end, encompassing everything from production and storage to transport and use. This holistic knowledge makes us your go-to solution provider. Let us team up to jointly spot and seize your business opportunities along this chain.
AI can serve to optimize operating data analysis to enable smart maintenance scheduling. For example, it can assess and analyze readings that indicate hydrogen contamination at a filling station. This insight, in turn, serves to adjust settings, predict contaminations, and pinpoint causes.
State-of-the-art AI algorithms are powerful optimization tools – witness SmartSearch, a framework developed specifically for this type of optimization. Extremely efficient at identifying higher-level system parameters, it is the key to achieving quick savings. And the interaction with the virtual system offers a very efficient way of validating the results.
Smart platform-based designs can optimize the hydrogen ecosystem. Platforms that bridge the gaps between data silos and effectively connect all elements of the value chain can boost reliability, accuracy, and utilization.
In addition to functional requirements, hydrogen solutions bring with them a new level of safety and security challenges. We support our customers throughout the entire development cycle: from risk analysis to safe concepts, safety engineering, testing and approval.Markus Lunter, Business Development ITK Engineering GmbH
Hydrogen could well become a key annectant for our entire infrastructure. The possibilities are many. It can serve as the energy carrier for refueling trucks, ships, and aircraft and for heating public buildings. The potential for digitalization is great for all players with a stake in this matter. We have to tap this vast potential to make strides towards carbon neutrality. As your partner of choice at all points of the event chain, we are keen to team up with you to shape hydrogen’s future in mobility and infrastructure.
