Governments across the world are now investing heavily in alternative energy technology, with a particular focus on hydrogen. Hydrogen, and especially green hydrogen (which is produced through sustainable methods like wind and solar) offers a clean, sustainable energy option for all. NPROXX develops the vital technology that is needed to store hydrogen safely and effectively.
Why alternative energies?
As the energy crisis worsens against a backdrop of geopolitical tensions and fluctuating fuel costs, countries across the world are in need of accessible and stable sources of power. Add in the climate crisis and the need for these new energy sources becomes urgent. Green hydrogen has the potential to fulfil these energy needs, but the underlying technology needs to develop and improve rapidly in order to deliver the scale required.
The search for secure, stable, safe energy
With the recent announcement of £102million in funding for nuclear and hydrogen innovation made by the British Government, the political focus on energy sovereignty and security is increasingly apparent. This is just one example of the significant energy investments that are happening across the Western world. As these plans develop, hydrogen technology is going to play a key role in the transition to a cleaner, greener future.
Working hard to meet this growing market demand, NPROXX is expanding both its workforce and its manufacturing capacity. “Governments around the world are investing in alternative energy technology, and we are seeing a surge in demand for hydrogen storage solutions,” says Michael Himmen, Managing Director of Sales for NPROXX. “We are scaling up our capacity and growing our team to help us manage this demand and cement our position as global leaders in hydrogen storage technology.”
Transforming transportation and other industries
One of the key areas where hydrogen is set to have a significant impact is in public and private transportation. On top of being cleaner, hydrogen fuel cell engines offer a variety of advantages over traditional gasoline and diesel engines, including lower emissions and longer ranges. NPROXX develops specialised pressure vessels for use in a wide range of rail, marine and road vehicles.
However, it’s not just the transport sector where hydrogen is set to make a difference. This technology is also being used to create stationary applications such as refuelling stations, where H2 can be used to generate electricity or heat buildings.
With expertise in both transport and stationary hydrogen pressure vessels, NPROXX is well-positioned to play a leading role in the transition to a hydrogen-based economy. To find out more about NPROXX’s work, read about our range of capabilities or contact us directly.
