  • Enapter is scaling production to mass produce our electrolysers. 
  • To support this next phase of growth, they have launched a crowdfunded asset investment campaign, approved by BaFin (the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority).

Private investors can invest from as little as a few hundred euros. In return, investors will receive an annual interest. The crowdfunding campaign will support Enapter’s development in the industrial mass production of the AEM electrolyser.

For green hydrogen to replace fossil fuels, the electrolysis industry must scale up massively. Enapter is playing a leading role in this; the patented hydrogen generator is already in use worldwide. Enapter’s unique AEM technology works with less expensive materials and a simpler system design than other electrolysers. This enables Enapter to produce modular electrolysers that can be combined to form larger systems, just like solar modules.

“With a crowdfunding investment, we are taking the steps towards industrial mass production,” states Schmidt. This should take place at the Enapter Campus, for which Schmidt is currently searching for locations. Here, the company will invest in production, but especially in research and development.

Enapter is a global, award-winning company. At the start of the year, the Handelsblatt newspaper crowned Enapter as the winner of the annual Energy Awards. Last year, the company won the international SET Award organised by the German Energy Agency (dena) and the World Energy Council. Enapter was also a winner of the “New Energy Challenge” held by the Shell Group in 2018. Forbes magazine recently included Enapter’s young leaders in their prestigious “30 under 30” energy sector. All of the above recognised the unique technology and associated cost reduction potential from mass production.
