Moving the world to green hydrogen
As a leader in green hydrogen solutions, Avantus is making large-scale, low-cost green hydrogen possible.
Green hydrogen can decarbonize hard-to-electrify sectors
It’s also key to achieving 100% renewable and reliable power grid.
We’re poised to scale green hydrogen
It will take infrastructure, expertise, and renewable energy capacity to bring green hydrogen to market. Avantus has the track record to deliver.
Shaping the future of green hydrogen
Avantus is partnering with industry leaders to lay the necessary groundwork for the successful deployment of green hydrogen.
Together, we are:
- Identifying standards to define green hydrogen
- Specifying transporation and storage infrastructure needs
- Facilitating discussions around wholesale pricing
- Exploring water requirements and access issues
Our commitment in action
Our experience in large-scale renewable energy has prepared us with the resources and focus to move green hydrogen forward faster.
We know scaling green hydrogen will take collaboration and coordination from major players all across the value chain, from power generators like us to utilities, load-serving entities, electrolyzer manufacturers, pipeline builders, transportation & storage providers, off takers, and more.
We’re proud to be a part of the Green Hydrogen Coalition’s HyDeal North America initiative, unveiled in May 2021. Modeled after a similar project in Europe, HyDeal aims to deliver green hydrogen at the price of $1.50/kg by 2030. The initiative’s inaugural city is Los Angeles, which has committed to reaching 100% renewable energy by 2035.
Our executive leadership believes that green hydrogen has a key role to play in our economy’s decarbonization and are investing resources in its advancement. We strive to work with partners who share a vision in scaling green hydrogen as a clean and cost-effective solution.
Solar-powered hydrogen production
1. A solar powered electrolyzer makes hydrogen from water
The electricity breaks the water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen, so the only byproduct of this process is another valuable gas.
2. The hydrogen can be stored indefinetly, until it’s needed.
It can be stored underground in places like salt caverns, or even depleted gas wells, making new use of unproductive spaces. A single cavern in a mine can store enough energy to power Los Angeles for a week.
3. It becomes clean fuel for power generation, transportation, heating, and more.
Green hydrogen can also replace fossil-fuel-based hydrogen in industrial applications like producing fertilizer, metals and cement.
No longer hype: green hydrogen is real
