2023-12-11 Hydrogen Electrolyzers Made In China Are Having Major Problems

The hydrogen electrolyzers are having problems when run at less than 50% capacity, and have to be shut down. The makers claim that they would run at 30% capacity. At lower capacities the hydrogen leaked into the oxygen can exceed 1.8%, causing explosions. Also the Chinese are building a very long H2 pipeline. Quote “”…the
