Everett Anderson

Nel Hydrogen

Vice President, Advanced Product Development

Everett Anderson is Vice President of Advanced Product Development at Nel Hydrogen (formerly Proton Energy Systems), where he is focused on the next generation of Nel’s proton exchange membrane (PEM)-based water electrolysis products. Primary attention is on emerging hydrogen energy and power-to-gas markets using PEM megawatt-scale technology. Mr. Anderson is also tasked with integrating PEM and alkaline electrolysis knowledge across the Nel organization. Previously, Mr. Anderson was Vice President of Business Development, where he led the effort to define product requirements for the M Series, Nel’s initial megawatt-scale PEM electrolyzer. Before that, he focused on strategic technology development and technology assessment as Vice President of Electrochemical Technology. Mr. Anderson joined Proton in 2000 and has more than 30 years of R&D experience in hydrogen and fuel cells. Other previous positions during his 20 years at Proton have included Research Manager, Research Director, and Director of Process and Materials Development. Prior to joining Proton, he was the Manager of Electrochemical Technologies Group at Physical Sciences Inc., a contract R&D firm where he spent over 13 years conducting research in a variety of technologies. Mr. Anderson has authored numerous publications and been granted six US patents.

    Agora Studio: Low-carbon Hydrogen: Production technologies & costs

    Panel Clean Tech Digitalization Energy Transition/Climate & Sustainability Decarbonization Pathways
    Interest in low-carbon hydrogen as a decarbonization tool reached unprecedented levels in 2020. This interest was driven by favorable policies and funding as well as the expectation of continuing cost reduction of low-carbon hydrogen, mostly “green” hydrogen—electrolysis of water powered by renewables. What are the main drivers behind the expected cost reduction? What obstacles remain to producing clean hydrogen? Could less-mature, low-carbon hydrogen technologies, such as solid oxide electrolysis or methane pyrolysis, be developed and be cost competitive?
