By 2020 Air Liquide wants to be using carbon-free processes for 50% of the hydrogen it produces for energy applications.

The French industrial gases giant Air Liquide has opened a pilot plant in Denmark that will use electrolysis to generate around 500 kg of hydrogen per day from water. Most industrial hydrogen is produced via the steam reformation of methane. Air Liquide sees such electrolysis as a way to store excess electricity produced by renewable energy sources. Denmark produces about 40% of its electricity from wind turbines.
