  • Italian Ministry of Economic Affairs funds Enapter’s research activities with around 1.3 million euros
  • Funding supports the ongoing development of the next generation of Enapters AEM stacks for the multi-megawatt products

Berlin, 21 March 2024. Enapter AG (ISIN: DE000A255G02) has received a grant for its Italian subsidiary Enapter SRL from the Italian Ministry for Enterprise and Made in Italy (MIMIT) for the “AEM Technology Next Generation” project for a total amount of EUR 1,255,373.17.

The funds received are to be used for further research and development purposes and the further development of the product portfolio. The focus here is on the further development of Enapter’s AEM multicore technology. AEM multicore technology is used, for example, in the AEM Nexus, a modular electrolyzer in the megawatt class. Hundreds of so-called stacks are coupled together to flexibly produce the desired amount of green hydrogen from renewable energy sources – highly efficiently and without the use of iridium. The funds now received will be used, among other things, for the further development of the corresponding stacks and the associated patented membrane technology. The project now being funded will run for a total of 34 months. Progressive standardization and mass production of these stacks, which are optimized in terms of size and performance, will make it possible to generate significant increases in efficiency and, not least, price advantages in hydrogen production.


Enapter is an innovative energy technology company that manufactures highly efficient hydrogen generators – known as electrolysers – to replace fossil fuels and thus drive the global energy transition. Their patented and proven Anion Exchange Membrane (AEM) technology enables the series and mass production of cost-effective plug-&-play electrolysers for green hydrogen production at any scale and any place. Their modular systems are already used by more than 340 customers in 50+ countries, in the energy, mobility, industrial, heating and telecommunications sectors. Enapter has its main office in Germany as well as an R&D and production site in Italy. Enapter AG is listed on the regulated market of the Frankfurt and Hamburg stock exchanges, WKN: A255G0, ISIN: DE000A255G02.
