Join our webinar to learn about the potential of hydrogen in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and its role in transitioning to a net-zero system. Discover the global demand and market drivers for hydrogen, as well as the technology and challenges of electrolysis in producing green hydrogen. Gain insights into the requirements of electrolysis plants and power delivery considerations and explore Infineon's power conversion solutions. Become knowledgeable about power conversion needs for hydrogen electrolysis and how Infineon can be your trusted partner.
There is a great need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and hydrogen has the potential to fill many roles in our transition to a net-zero system, from reducing the footprint of chemical industries and providing an alternative to transportation to improving the utilization of renewable energy sources and possibly providing seasonal storage.
We will examine where hydrogen sits in our energy mix and elaborate on the production of green hydrogen[AT(GGA1] . As part of this webinar, you will explore the global demand for hydrogen as well as the drivers behind the market. This webinar will introduce the technology involved in electrolysis of water and the challenges around power conversion for this process.
Learn the requirements of electrolysis plants and considerations for power delivery to electrolyzer cells. Multiple topologies will be covered and classified into AC-coupled and DC-coupled systems, highlighting the need for both systems. We will also present Infineon’s solutions for power conversion at various power levels.
With this webinar you will have an understanding on the needs of power conversion for hydrogen electrolysis and how Infineon can be a trusted partner.
