Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard: Electrolyzer Vendors

Ranking of Electrolyzer Companies

As economies globally seek to decarbonize, hydrogen has emerged as a critical component of the energy portfolio. Green hydrogen provides the benefits of decarbonization in energy-intensive and hard-to-abate sectors such as steel, chemical feedstocks, long-haul transportation, and the power sector. Electricity for producing the hydrogen that is supplied to these sectors is provided by renewable energy (wind, solar, hydro, geothermal). However, barriers pertaining to cost and infrastructure need to be addressed to realize the full potential of green hydrogen. Factors that drive cost reduction in green hydrogen production include CAPEX, maintenance, and reliability of the electrolyzers, which are in turn governed by economies of scale and learning rates.

Key metrics that define the performance of electrolyzers are their design and construction, efficiency, flexibility of operations, lifetime, and materials involved in their construction. Electrolyzers, based on the electrolyte and operation temperature, can be divided into four main technologies: alkaline, proton exchange, anion exchange, and solid oxide electrolyzers (SOECs). Variations can exist within each technology, with the most radical differences being related to cell design, variation within components, and the degree of technology maturity. The companies, vendors, manufacturers covered in this Leaderboard report cover the spectrum of these electrolyzers.

This Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard examines the strategy and execution of 16 leading electrolyzer vendors. These vendors are rated on 11 criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners; production strategy; technology; geographic reach; sales, marketing, and distribution; product performance; product quality and reliability; product portfolio; pricing; and staying power. Using Guidehouse Insight’s proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated, and ranked with the goal of providing industry participants with an objective assessment of these companies’ relative strengths and weaknesses in the growing electrolyzer market.
