HydrogenPro announces grants funding

The different projects are funded by the European Union, innovation and research funds from Denmark and Norway, and Energy Cluster Denmark.

HydrogenPro is launching several R&D projects in Denmark and Norway, with the budget for these projects ranging from €0.27 million to €3.87 million, aiming to improve our market-leading technologies.

The grants demonstrate both high interest and potential in our research and signal that efficient green hydrogen production plays a crucial role in the sustainable future of our society.

Dr Lars Pleth Nielsen, CEO of Advanced Surface Plating (ASP), a subsidiary of HydrogenPros, said, “This is required to meet the future demand for hydrogen, and the KPIs set up by the EU. The level of funding and support from both government and private institutions also indicates the optimism and attitude towards further research and development of the hydrogen industry.”

Several prestigious educational institutions and universities from Norway, Denmark, Finland and England are collaborating with HydrogenPro and ASP for the success of the different projects.

  • Total budget: 1,02 million EUR
  • Support: 0,63 million EUR
  • Funded by: Innovation Fund Denmark and Research Council of Norway
  • Start: 1/6-2022
  • Duration: 30 months
  • Other partners: Aarhus University

The overall objective of the H2UP project is to improve alkaline electrolyser technology at the cell and stack levels even further. The activated electrodes will be used in electrolysers, thereby reducing LCOH (Levelized Cost of Hydrogen) beyond 14%, if it is possible to transform the efficiency from electrode to stack level and, at the same time, lower other parasitic resistivities.

Dual flow

  • Total budget: 3.87 million EUR
  • Support: 3.87 million EUR
  • Funded by: EU
  • Start: Q3-2022
  • Duration: 48 months

Other partners: Turku University of Applied Science, Aalto University, Nordic Bioproducts Group, Aarhus University, University of Limerick, University of Greenwich, and Lancaster University.

The project will develop a new and innovative platform providing proof-of-concept demonstrating electricity storage, green hydrogen production, and joint production of decarbonised chemicals.


  • Total budget: 0.98 million EUR
  • Support: 0.77 million EUR
  • Funded by: EU-REACT
  • Start: Q3-2022
  • Duration: 12 months
  • Other partners: Aarhus University

The H2-LEAN project will improve our production facilities and improve ASP’s infrastructure.

Industrial PhD

  • Total budget: Total budget: €0.27 million
  • Support: 0.14 million EUR
  • Funded by: Innovation Fund Denmark
  • Start: Q3-2022
  • Duration: 36 months
  • Other partners: Aarhus University

We already have three minor projects running, with a timeline ranging from six to twelve months. The total funding is around €0.3 million and is provided by Energy Cluster Denmark, RFF Vestfold, and Telemark – Regional Research Fund. Together with three universities and Research Technology Organizations (RTO) from Denmark and Norway, the aim is to develop better components for hydrogen production to increase both the efficiency and precision of HydrogenPro’s existing technology.
