Ceres Inks Deal with Shell for Green Hydrogen Initiative

Ceres has secured an additional contract for the second phase of its collaboration with Shell. The goal is to design a solid oxide electrolyser (SOEC) module for large-scale industrial applications such as synthetic fuels, ammonia, and green steel.

Since 2022, Ceres has been partnering with Shell, culminating in the deployment of a 1MW SOEC system at Shell’s R&D facility in Bangalore, India. Building on this demonstration, the new contract focuses on developing a pressurized module design scalable to hundreds of megawatts, suitable for integration with industrial plants to produce sustainable future fuels.

The program will leverage insights and data from the existing 1MW demonstration project to create a commercially viable and scalable solution. A significant advantage of SOEC technology is its efficiency, producing approximately 35% more hydrogen per unit of electrical energy when combined with heat from industrial processes. The project aims to develop pressurized systems to enhance efficiency, performance, and integration with other processes, targeting a module efficiency of less than 36kWh/kg of hydrogen, in line with the EU SOE 2030 technology targets.

Phil Caldwell, Chief Executive of Ceres, stated, “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.”
