Green hydrogen plays a vital role in a sustainable and net zero future. But for it to truly matter, energy regulators, investors, and industry need to verify that the hydrogen is truly green. And ensure production is cost-competitive.
ENVISION DIGITAL, THE INNOVATOR IN THE UPSTREAM GREEN HYDROGEN VALUE CHAIN.
Hydrogen – A Highly Versatile Energy Carrier.
Hydrogen is an extremely versatile energy carrier. It can be used in gas or liquid form, converted to electricity or fuel. And hydrogen has remarkable energy density – almost 3X that of diesel or gasoline. Hydrogen is a clean fuel. However, hydrogen production is energy-intensive and generates unwanted carbon by-products.
Key Challenge – Most of the World’s Hydrogen is Not Green.
Today, over 90% of the world’s hydrogen today is not produced sustainably. This includes ‘grey’ hydrogen (steam methane reformation), ‘brown’ hydrogen (coal/lignite gasification), and ‘blue’ hydrogen (carbon capture and storage is paired with production process of grey hydrogen to sequester the greenhouse gases).
Green Hydrogen – The Ultimate Clean Fuel Resource.
Green hydrogen, which harnesses renewable energy to create hydrogen fuel, is the ultimate clean fuel resource. It has the potential to deliver sustainable power for transportation, manufacturing and more — and its only byproduct is water.
LEADING THE CRITICAL UPSTREAM GREEN HYDROGEN VALUE CHAIN
Envision Digital takes pride in playing a leadership role in the industry in the upstream green hydrogen value chain. This includes:

How does Envision Digital help policymakers, energy regulators, investors, and industry make green hydrogen at scale a reality?
1. Certifying the origin of hydrogen.
Certification of Origin
Get peace of mind regarding the source of your hydrogen.
What is Certification of Origin?
Without the ability to verify the source of the hydrogen, industry stakeholders may be generating higher carbon emissions with hydrogen usage.
To uphold green standards to the highest levels, Envision Digital’s Certification of Origin platform delivers credible certification based on real-time verification of renewable electricity used in the production of hydrogen.
- Know electricity certification of origin + H2 certification of origin.
- Verification based on near real-time matching between electricity consumption and H2 production.
- Provides H2 traceability data.
2. Protecting green hydrogen investments.
Digital Twins Bankability
Make optimal investment and financing decisions.
What is Digital Twins Bankability?
It is imperative that every single dollar invested into green hydrogen be optimized, so that costs can be continually driven down.
To safeguard green hydrogen investments, Envision Digital’s end-to-end digital twin simulates a hydrogen plant’s conditions at investment-grade levels to ensure stakeholders make the right investment decisions.
- Size up the hydrogen plant assets.
- Simulate hydrogen production, storage and compression performance based on multiple variables – including renewable energy’s availability, how big the electrolyzer should be, how much green energy is required, and more.
3. Monitoring processes end-to-end
Gain full visibility into every aspect of your hydrogen plant.
Track your hydrogen plant’s assets in real-time. Monitor the performance of each sub-system and aggregate results for accurate decision-making.
- Observe the technical performance of every asset and sub-system.
- Aggregate your observations at a centralized level.
- Compare and optimize performance with accurate daily decisions.
- Detect underperformance and alert the right stakeholders for rectification.
What makes it unique?
Envision Digital’s Smart Control System enables data fusion across multiple SCADA systems (storage, compressor, separator, electrolyzer, solar, wind) and optimization with AI enables machine-to-machine efficiency.
4. Combining asset analysis with predictive maintenance.
Get a comprehensive analysis of your hydrogen plant assets and conduct predictive maintenance.
What is Advanced Analytics?
Thorough analysis of your assets reveals insights that can be harnessed to optimize asset performance. While predictive maintenance extends asset lifespan, reduces unexpected shutdowns, and maximizes production – ensuring you get the most out of your green hydrogen investments.
- Ensure optimal performance with end-to-end predictive maintenance across all asset types.
- Cut unscheduled shutdown and increase plant efficiency.
- Enhance hydrogen plant productivity to increase revenue.
