Versatile and a creator of value, hydrogen could be the answer to a successful energy transition, all while keeping up with the ever-evolving challenges associated with economic growth.
Decarbonized hydrogen: a game changer for succeeding in the energy revolution
There is a global consensus that hydrogen makes a positive contribution to the world around us, by providing a solution for energy, environmental, societal and economic challenges.
Whether it is facilitating the incorporation of renewables into the energy mix, decarbonizing industrial practices or the transport sector – hydrogen is a plural energy that opens up major opportunities for success in revolutionizing our energy models.
As a #CleanEnergy, hydrogen facilitates the integration of renewable energies
Relying on the deployment of large-scale renewable energy, which is intermittent and difficult to predict by nature, energy transition creates a growing need for flexibility and energy storage in order to stabilize power grids and to meet market demand.
Electricity storage solutions (STEP, batteries…) do exist and have proven their worth.
In complement to these solutions, by efficiently managing the mass storage of surplus renewable electricity and then making it available according to grid demands (drops in production, peaks in demand), hydrogen becomes a flexible and competitive solution.
In this way, electricity is converted into hydrogen, stocked and then made available through a multitude of applications.
How is hydrogen produced?
Water electrolysis is a mature and clean technology for producing clean hydrogen.
As the main component of the sun, hydrogen is “the most abundant element in the universe”.
However, it does not exist naturally (in the form of déposits) – it must be produced, which is why we call it an energy carrier.
On earth, the most common source of hydrogen is water, which combines atoms of hydrogen and oxygen. McPhy’s electrolysis technology makes it possible to create an electrochemical reaction between water and electricity in order to isolate the hydrogen atom.

How do McPhy’s electrolyzers work?
McPhy Electrolyzers = Water + Electricity = Hydrogen
Water + Renewable Electricity = Renewable Hydrogen or “Clean Hydrogen”

Drawing on renewable energy, clean hydrogen works toward the implementation of energy systems, with the following objectives:
- Decarbonize: pairing renewable energy, zero CO2 and zero particles,
- Decentralize: production and utilization of local energy
- Optimize: utilization of production surplus, intelligent grid management
