Hydrogen and fuel cell technology for green energy systems and electrification of vehicles

With more renewable sources  in the energy system, the need for storage and balance increases. With hydrogen tehnology and batteries, we are developing clean energy systems and drive trains for vehicles.

Hydrogen has great potential to contribute to a better, more sustainable society. It can be used in a variety of areas from artificial fertilisers to fuels.

One of the great challenges of our time is to secure the energy supply at the same time as limiting environmental impact and reducing emissions. Hydrogen facilitates the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources and a sustainable energy system.

Hydrogen can be used to store, transport and provide energy. It is extremely flexible, as hydrogen can be produced from all types of energy sources. The hydrogen storage could also be used for balancing the grid through power-to-gas and gas-to-power solutions.

Fuel cells, fuelled with hydrogen, are capable of replacing combustion engines in vehicles, machines and for maritime applications, as well as providing energy for buildings. When using renewable sources for the hydrogen production a zero emission solution is obtained.


Our team is now involved in:

  • Construction machinery, ships and vehicles with fuel cells and batteries
  • Hydrogen in maritime applications
  • Off-Grid energy systems and storage
  • Renewable energy systemd for housing 
  • Hydrogen infrastructure and synergies with other fuels
  • Hydrogen safety
  • Hydrogen for farming
  • Future services
  • Material development and testing
  • Strategies and supply for greening the communities

Do you want assistance within the hydrogen field?

We have access to several types of specialists in the field. Our team today works with several municipalities, regions, energy companies, housing companies, system integrators as well as manufacturers of worki machines and fuel cell technology. We work in project form with regional, national and European projects and with direct assignments for industry. RISE is often the coordinating partner for different types of triple-helix constellations, but we can also support organizations and projects as innovation partner.
