Smart Ways for In-Situ Totally Integrated and Continuous Multisource Generation of Hydrogen
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.
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’s researchers Michele Bolognese, Matteo Testi, Lorenzo De Bortoli, Ruben Bartali and Luigi Crema of the Centre for Sustainable Energy of Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Italy) published the article “Experimental validation
