The ADEL project in detail

ADEL will contribute to the development of a portfolio of sustainable hydrogen production liable to meet 10% - 20% of the hydrogen demand for energy applications from carbon-free or lean energy sources by 2015.

The quantitative assessment of the coupling relevance of the ITSE unit with renewable energy sources such as solar or wind, as well as the preliminary dimensioning of a proof of concept technology demonstrator including an operating ITSE stack will constitute the final outcomes of the project. These results will pave the way to further demonstration and pre-commercialisation activities.
