Electric Hydrogen: $100 Million Credit Facility Secured

By Amit Chowdhry • May 13, 2024

Electric Hydrogen announced $100 million in corporate credit financing to support manufacturing and deployment of its 100MW electrolyzer plants, which enables the lowest cost production of green hydrogen. This funding round was led by HSBC, with participation from J.P. Morgan, Stifel Bank, and Hercules Capital.

Based in Natick, MA, Electric Hydrogen is leading critical industries like steel, fertilizer, shipping, and aviation towards decarbonization with its powerful, U.S.-manufactured electrolyzers – which were designed to deliver the lowest cost green hydrogen on earth.

Electric Hydrogen also recently announced $65 million in total Department of Energy support and $50 million in equipment financing from Trinity Capital to scale its U.S. manufacturing at its Devens, MA gigafactory, one of the largest electrolyzer factories in the country. The gigafactory’s first electrolyzer stacks will be shipped later this year to a customer-sited project in southeast Texas. Electric Hydrogen also revealed a 1GW framework supply agreement with The AES Corporation last quarter.
