Smart Ways for In-Situ Totally Integrated and Continuous Multisource Generation of Hydrogen

What is SWITCH?

SWITCH is an Horizon 2020 European Project that aims to design, build and test an in-situ fully integrated and continuous multisource hydrogen production system, based on solid oxide cell technology.

How does SWITCH work?


In electrolysis mode, the SWITCH system uses renewable electricity,
water and heat to produce green hydrogen,
with no emissions.


In fuel cell mode, the SWITCH system uses natural gas
or bio-methane to produce grey or green hydrogen,
electricity and heat when renewable power is not available.


The SWITCH consortium is composed by seven European partners from five different EU countries and a non-EU country (Switzerland). The consortium is highly interdisciplinary: there are two SMEs, two Large Enterprise (LE) andthree research institutes.


SWITCH aims to become an innovative technology for the production of “mostly green, always secured hydrogen” at hydrogen refueling stations.


MODVAL 17 Symposium

EPFL organizes the 17th edition of the MODVAL Symposium on Modeling and Experimental Validation of Electrochemical Energy Technologies.  Taking place yearly in March/April, it alternates locations mostly between Switzerland and Germany, and
