Nilsson Energy supplies turnkey systems for green hydrogen production to universities in the Nordics

By investing in their own local hydrogen production, universities strengthen their relevance, attract future researchers and contribute to a greener future.

Nilsson Energy are proud for the trust to deliver systems for local production of hydrogen to the Technical University of Denmark, the University of Åland and Mälardalen University.


The need and demand to use green hydrogen as fuel or to store renewable energy until it is needed is increasing. Areas of use are many when businesses replace fossil fuels in industrial processes, build drive lines for fuel cell-powered electric vehicles or for use as electricity and heat in buildings’ energy systems. By using green hydrogen generated with renewable energy, greenhouse gas emissions are reduced and contribute to the green energy transition.

As a leading system integrator within hydrogen-based local energy systems, Nilsson Energy specializes in designing and implementing complex solutions to meet our customers’ needs. As a system integrator, we act as a link between different components, software and technologies for safe, efficient and robust hydrogen-based systems.

Abdallah Abou-Taouk, senior quotation engineer at Nilsson Energy, sees an increased interest from universities and researchers in the systems that Nilsson Energy develops and delivers. Abdallah, who himself has a PhD, further develops:

Universities and researchers play a decisive role in developing new technology and improving existing ones. Research into hydrogen in production, storage, fuels and transport as well as the development of new materials and technologies, which can make hydrogen production more efficient and cost-effective, are important pieces of the puzzle for the green energy transition to be successful. Spreading knowledge is another important factor and at Nilsson Energy we have a great opportunity to deliver relevant knowledge, practical experience and technology for real green hydrogen.”

Our customized modular systems use Enapter’s AEM technology and an environmentally friendly electrolyte to produce green hydrogen. The systems are efficient and scalable, which fits perfectly in various research projects where the goal is to produce hydrogen for research and development within, among other things, the transport industry.

Hao Chen, researcher at Mälardalen University (MDU) explains:

Synthetic fuels have the potential to make a significant contribution to the development of sustainable mobility, which also provides the opportunity to store excess electrical energy. With the IFAISTOS project (Intelligent electrofuel production for integrated energy storage system), the AEM electrolysis system will be tested at MDU for the production of green hydrogen.

We will also explore the potential opportunities to develop a long-term energy storage solution based on electrofuels that can integrate the electricity from renewable energy sources into the entire energy system, from gas to heating, transport and chemicals, promoting the clean energy transition in Europe.

Shi You, senior researcher at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) expresses with enthusiasm:

Our focus is to integrate the AEM electrolysis system within teaching and research activities. Students and researchers will have the opportunity to understand the principles and practical experience of modern electrolyser technology. Furthermore, researchers will use this system to develop multiphysics process models and control of electrolysers.

Finally, we will have the opportunity to understand how the electrolysers’ by-products can be optimally used, for example in waste heat and grid balancing services.”

Patric Granholm, vice chancellor at the University of Åland says the following:

The University of Åland integrates the AEM electrolysis system into a chain, from solar energy to hydrogen. The whole system will be used in teaching to give our students an opportunity to immerse themselves in the production of green hydrogen from the excess energy produced on favorable days with low energy consumption. The equipment will be used by students and staff both in education and research.”

Press release – Nilsson Energy first in Sweden to offer a zero-emission portable fuel cell generator!

Nilsson Energy has signed a distribution agreement with the French company EODev (Energy Observer Developments) to sell GEH2® fuel cell power generators on the Nordic market. The portable fuel cell generator provides unique opportunities wherever zero emission energy is needed.

Nilsson Energy is a system integrator that develops, designs, installs and services decentralized energy systems with green hydrogen as an energy carrier. A fuel cell generator is a welcome addition to its existing product portfolio consisting of industrial applications, construction and property applications as well as applications for infrastructure in strategically important areas.

The fuel cell generator is absolutely “state of the art” and we see enormous potential in being able to offer zero emission electricity wherever it is needed. In addition, we can supply it with hydrogen and either sell or lease, which further facilitates handling for our customers,” says Pontus Lundgren, CEO of Nilsson Energy.

With the opportunity to sell portable fuel cell generators, Nilsson Energy takes the next step towards being a leading integrator of decentralized hydrogen systems. Systems that will be vital in the transition to a robust and secure society with access to renewable energy.

Sweden is a particularly promising country for the deployment of our zero emission power solutions and we are very pleased to welcome Nilsson Energy to our distribution network. We have found in Nilsson Energy a serious partner with a strong expertise in the field of hydrogen and a highly motivated team that shares our commitment to provide an excellent service to our customers, “says Stéphane Jardin, Chief Commercial Officer, EODev.

The fuel cell generator is manufactured by EODev outside Paris and the “heart” of the generator is a Toyota fuel cell, the same technology that powers Toyota’s hydrogen car Mirai. The agreement follows a first successful collaboration including the GEH2® between Nilsson Energy and Toyota Sweden earlier this year.

The fuel cell generator that converts green hydrogen into electrical energy is a good example of how the technology from the Toyota Mirai can be used in interesting new contexts. Thanks to Nilsson Energy, the technology is now available in Sweden, which I see as an interesting and useful development,” says Christian Norberg, CEO of Toyota Sweden AB.

Back-up power and electricity supply where there is no electricity grid

The generator can be applied to a wide range of different needs, ranging from where fossil-free electricity is needed without burdening the regular electricity grid, or where there is simply no power available to take from the fixed electricity grid. The generator can also secure back-up power for community-critical operations or be part of increased preparedness where, for example, an increasingly electrified vehicle fleet is without the necessary supply.

Say goodbye to the diesel generator

With the fuel cell generator, the need for diesel and other fossil-powered generators is reduced. It is perfect for construction sites, road works, agriculture or at larger events and concerts where there is a need for electricity and heat. As the generator is mobile and easy to handle, it can be moved to the next project or event, depending on the need.There are many areas of use for the generator, which can also be set up indoors in a ventilated environment. Getting generators out in, for example, heavily loaded urban environments can have a big positive impact

Charge electric vehicles and boats where the power grid is not sufficient

The product series that Nilsson Energy is now bringing to the market is also available in a marine application, which will facilitate the transition to electrification in the boating industry. By connecting to a mobile charging station, it is also possible to charge cars where there is no possibility today.

Pressrelease – Nilsson Energy establishes a hydrogen filling station at the Port of Gothenburg

A hydrogen filling station for heavy vehicles is being planned at the Port of Gothenburg. The filling station will be right next to the entrance of the Gothenburg RoRo Terminal – one of the places in Sweden most intensively used by trucks. The station will supply green hydrogen only and is set to be completed in September 2023.

Nilsson Energy has received funds to establish a hydrogen filling station at Port 6, Port of Gothenburg, through an award in the Energy Agency’s call for Regional electrification pilots for heavy transport.

“Building a hydrogen filling station in such a central junction for heavy vehicles and for the automotive industry, as well as Scandinavia’s largest port and the gateway to the world for large parts of Swedish industry, is very motivating,” says Nilsson Energy’s CEO Pontus Lundgren.”

In close cooperation with the Port of Gothenburg and other nearby stakeholders, Nilsson Energy will contribute to the construction of tank infrastructure for green hydrogen.

“It’s a much-requested addition to the port, one that’s also fully in line with our strategy to create conditions for accelerating the transport industry’s transition to fossil-free,” says Viktor Allgurén, Head of Innovation at the Gothenburg Port Authority.
