NewHydrogen, a publicly traded research company in Santa Clarita, is currently working to develop an electrolyzer technology to lower the cost of green hydrogen production. Partnered with UCLA, the improved technology would have applications for a green energy grid and clean transportation – including freight, air mobility and electric vehicles.

“With this energy transition that really everyone around the globe is experiencing, moving toward renewable energy and things, there’s still a problem,” Spencer Hall, chief operating officer of NewHydrogen, said. “The problem right now is it’s not in the money. And so that’s where we come in. We’re trying to find a way to lower the cost.”

Hall sees a future powered by hydrogen. While sources of hydrogen are abundant and clean – it’s a component of water – the process for extracting the element is expensive and relies on rare earth minerals such as platinum and iridium.
