Nuclear Hydrogen Technology Trend Analysis and Research Progress Report

Dublin, Jan. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Technology Trends and Advances in Nuclear Hydrogen report has been added to


This study covers recent advances in nuclear hydrogen production, including an overview of current technology trends and key factors driving the adoption and development of next-generation nuclear hydrogen production technologies.

As clean energy resources replace fossil fuels, hydrogen is emerging as an attractive pathway to decarbonise the industrial sector, demonstrating strong potential to make a significant impact on the energy and transport sectors. With its high energy density and ability to provide heat and electricity to produce cheap hydrogen on a large scale, nuclear power could be a crucial factor in the hydrogen economy.

Furthermore, it can be coupled with steam methane reforming (SMR) processes and with electrolytic and thermochemical processes, making it a unique technology. Established hydrogen and nuclear production technologies are undergoing significant improvements to increase hydrogen yield and reduce the cost and use of electricity in the production process.

The study segments nuclear hydrogen production into 5 types of technologies: SMR, low-temperature electrolysis, high-temperature electrolysis, thermochemical water splitting, and hybrid thermochemical electrolysis systems. A comparative analysis of various hydrogen production technologies is provided, including descriptions of the technologies and cost savings.

The study also provides an overview of the role of nuclear power, assessing the extent of nuclear hydrogen production in providing crucial hydrogen production pathways. It includes the patent landscape and identifies the drivers, restraints and growth opportunities defining this market.
