The Global HyPT Center advances three major net-zero hydrogen production technologies with strong potential to deliver breakthroughs:
(i) Water electrolysis including renewable energy integration and emerging electrolyzers;
(ii) Methane pyrolysis with solid carbon as value-added co-products; and
(iii) Photocatalytic solar water splitting.
The Center will also tackle two major cross-cutting challenges for net-zero hydrogen:
(i) Policies, economics, and markets for building a global hydrogen economy; and
(ii) Water resource and treatment for electrolysis and photocatalysis.
The chart below illustrates the organizational structures of the Center with its five major thrust areas and their interplay, including founding members of the Center and their assignments.
The Center is led by the Executive Committee consisting of the national directors of the four funding countries:
The Advisory Board includes various stakeholders, different industries, government and inter-government agencies, other government-funded hydrogen centers, and indigenous peoples. Current members of the Advisory Board include:
Navajo Technical University
Salt River Project
Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization
