Ceres Power expands green hydrogen collaboration with Shell

Ceres Power, a leading clean energy technology firm, has been awarded a major new contract from Shell for the second phase of their collaboration on solid oxide electrolysis cell (SOEC) technology.

The contract tasks Ceres with designing a 10 megawatt (MW) pressurised SOEC module to produce green hydrogen at high efficiency.

The 10MW module represents a tenfold scale-up from the existing 1MW SOEC demonstration system deployed by the partners at Shell’s R&D facility in Bangalore, India. Data and learnings from this operational demo unit are informing the design of the radically larger 10MW system.

A key advantage of SOEC is its potential for high efficiency. The technology can achieve around 35% more hydrogen output per unit of electricity when integrated to capture waste heat from industrial processes.

The 10MW module design will target energy consumption below 36 kilowatt-hours per kilogram of hydrogen produced – meeting the 2030 technical targets set by the European Union.

“Our strategic collaboration with Shell continues to provide valuable insights, ensuring Ceres’ SOEC technology is well positioned to meet our partners’ needs for the green hydrogen and synthetic fuels markets. Building on Ceres’ class-leading technology, our commitment to continuous innovation keeps Ceres’ commercial offering at the forefront of the industry in terms of simplicity, efficiency, and performance,” said Phil Caldwell, Chief Executive of Ceres.
