Digital design approaches are rapidly replacing traditional experimentation and pilot-based techniques. Digital design uses high-fidelity models to maximize the value extracted from experimental data, then deploys the resulting predictive models to explore and analyse the decision space rapidly and optimize design and operation.

The purpose of the webinar is to provide an understanding of how digital design tools and techniques are being applied to bridge the gap between R&D and operations in the design of electrolyzers, resulting in faster time-to-market and optimized component and system design.

The webinar will demonstrate, using examples, the workflows for using the Advanced Model Library for Electrochemical Cell Reactors (AML:ECR) to capture knowledge at the R&D stages and deploy that knowledge in a way that creates value, increases confidence and reduces development times.
