Versatile and a creator of value, hydrogen is a possible answer for a successful energy transition and to meet the demands of economic growth.
As a #CleanEnergy, hydrogen facilitates the integration of renewable energies
Relying on the deployment of large-scale renewable energy, intermittent and difficult to predict by nature, energy transition creates a growing need for flexibility and storage in order to stabilize the networks and to meet market demand.
Electricity storage solutions (STEP, batteries…) 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 appears to be 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 to produce green hydrogen.
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 deposits); it must be produced, which is why we speak of an energy carrier.
On earth, the most common source of hydrogen is water, which combines atoms of hydrogen and oxygen. The electrolysis technology of McPhy helps to carry out an electrochemical reaction between water and electricity in order to isolate the hydrogen atom.

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