Harnessing Hydrogen: Cambridge Sensotec’s Role in Pioneering Hydrogen Energy Solutions

As the world shifts towards sustainable energy solutions, hydrogen emerges as a versatile and clean energy carrier. At Cambridge Sensotec, we are at the forefront of this transformation, offering cutting-edge gas analysis technologies critical to the production, storage, and utilisation of hydrogen across various sectors. Here’s how we are helping industries harness the power of hydrogen to fuel a greener future.

The Rising Star of Renewable Energy

Hydrogen is increasingly recognised as a key player in the transition to a low-carbon economy. It offers substantial benefits for energy storage, powers fuel cells in zero-emission vehicles, and serves as a green alternative for industrial processes. However, the efficient and safe use of hydrogen requires precise monitoring and control—areas where Cambridge Sensotec excels.

Advancing Hydrogen Production

The most common methods of hydrogen production are steam methane reforming (SMR) and electrolysis, where the purity of hydrogen significantly impacts the efficiency of the process. Cambridge Sensotec’s gas analysers deliver accurate, real-time analysis of hydrogen purity and impurities. This precision is crucial not only for maximising yield but also for ensuring the safety and sustainability of the production process.

Enhancing Safety in Hydrogen Storage

Hydrogen poses unique challenges in terms of storage due to its high diffusivity and low ignition energy. Effective gas analysis is essential to prevent leaks and ensure storage conditions remain within safe parameters. Our solutions enable continuous monitoring of hydrogen storage systems, providing immediate data on gas composition and alerting operators to any potential safety issues.

Optimising Fuel Cell Performance

Fuel cells are a promising application of hydrogen, particularly in the automotive industry. For fuel cells to operate efficiently, the hydrogen used must be of high purity. Cambridge Sensotec’s analysers can detect even minute concentrations of contaminants that could otherwise degrade the performance and lifespan of fuel cells. This capability is vital for maintaining the reliability and performance of hydrogen-powered vehicles.
