Enabling affordable, reliable, and efficient electrolyzers to achieve low‑cost clean hydrogen

Hydrogen from Next-generation Electrolyzers of Water (H2NEW)

Hydrogen from Next-generation Electrolyzers of Water (H2NEW) is a consortium of nine U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratories focused on making large-scale electrolyzers, which produce hydrogen from electricity and water, more durable, efficient, and affordable.

H2NEW will address components, materials integration, and manufacturing R&D to overcome technical barriers and enable manufacturable electrolyzers that meet required cost, durability, and performance targets, simultaneously, to enable $2/kg hydrogen by 2026.
