ELECTROLIFE kick-off meeting

Kick-off meeting
We are happy to announce that the Joint Clean Hydrogen project ELECTROLIFE was officially launched last month during a two days kick off meeting in Turin, Italy.

ELECTROLIFE is a five years project, coordinated by the Politecnico di Torino (POLITO) and compromises of a strong multidisciplinary research and innovation pillar based on eight academic/research entities (Politecnico di Torino, Uniresearch B.V., FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Technische Universität Graz, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Aalborg Universitet, Université de Lille) and industrial pillar involving nine companies and SMEs (Enel Green Power, 1s1 Energy, Stargate Hydrogen, Pietro Fiorentini, HYTER, KERIONICS, SolydEra Group, @loccioni, volytica diagnostics.

Key focus area
ELECTROLIFE will demonstrate, with a dedicated design of experimental set-up and with originally developed test procedures, the feasibility of targets set by SRIA for 2030, with specific focus on degradation rate.

Key expected results
• Successful lab-scale demonstrators with long lasting performances, using relevant experimental methods:
• Validation of multiphysics models that include multi-mechanisms degradation;
• Development of SoH tool and advance prognostic/diagnostic tools for life extension;
• Produce high performance techs with lower content of CRM allowing scalability and recyclability.

Objective of ELECTROLIFE
To understand the basic and cause-effect chains of aging mechanisms to overcome the limited know-how on degradation phenomena, in order to model and design stacks and indicate day- by-day operation strategies to increase the lifetime of electrolysers.
