Energy Impact Partners Invests in Electric Hydrogen to Decarbonize Industry and Energy

  • Existing investors Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Capricorn Technology Impact Fund, and Prelude Ventures participate to support rapid commercialization of revolutionary electrolysis technology

Electric Hydrogen today announced a new investment led by Energy Impact Partners and joined by previous investors Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Capricorn Technology Impact Fund, and Prelude Ventures. The funding will help the company accelerate product development and manufacturing scaleup of its proprietary electrolysis technology.

Founded by an experienced team of executives from First Solar and Tesla, Electric Hydrogen is developing industrial-scale solutions that will enable cost-effective decarbonization of hard-to-abate sectors of the global economy such as fertilizer, chemicals, steel, and bulk grid energy storage. The company's equipment will produce clean, carbon free hydrogen gas, an ideal input for the decarbonization of these sectors, from low-cost renewable electricity.

"Using electrolysis to produce clean hydrogen is nothing new," said Shayle Kann, Partner at Energy Impact Partners. "But doing so cost-effectively at industrial scale requires a complete reinvention of the electrolyzer technology stack. Electric Hydrogen has the right team, technology and strategy to unlock hydrogen's promise as a massive decarbonization driver."

Electric Hydrogen's proprietary approach combines advanced material science with high-volume manufacturing techniques to reinvent electrolysis system design and engineering from the ground up. The result will be the lowest-cost, most scalable source of truly carbon free hydrogen available.

"We're excited to have Shayle and EIP joining our already amazing investor syndicate," said Raffi Garabedian, CEO and co-founder of Electric Hydrogen. "We value all our investors for their insights and experience helping mission-driven companies scale to make a positive impact. EIP's deep energy and industrial relationships will be invaluable as we actively develop the market for industrial-scale renewable hydrogen."
