McPhy Energy Acquires Italian Electrolysis Pioneer PIEL

GRENOBLE, France, January 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Marks major step in development for solid hydrogen storage specialist

McPhy Energy, a leading developer and manufacturer of solid state hydrogen storage, today announced that the company has acquired PIEL, an Italian pioneer in hydrogen generators based on electrolysis of water.  The acquisition of PIEL (a division of the ILT Technology Group, near Pisa, Italy), is an important milestone for McPhy Energy in the deployment and accessibility of its innovative technologies, enabling the company to couple the production and storage of solid hydrogen, a unique pairing today.

  • PIEL brings its know-how in water-based hydrogen generators, which are connected directly to the electric grid or to renewable energies.  Today PIEL has over 3000 installations in service at more than 1000 customers across the globe.
  • McPhy Energy brings its innovative technology for storing hydrogen in a solid state, based on magnesium hydrides.

The integration of the technologies from these two actors makes green hydrogen generation accessible to clients at the point of use and/or the storage of renewable energies, with modular systems adaptable to the demand and needs of the user.

"Recognized for its highly-reliable alkaline generators, PIEL enables McPhy to now offer complete hydrogen solutions coupling storage and electrolyser. This represents a considerable advance in terms of accessibility and autonomy for our customers," says Pascal Mauberger, CEO of McPhy Energy. "Furthermore, it gives McPhy access to PIEL's clients and worldwide commercial network."  

The integration of PIEL into McPhy Italia represents an enormous growth opportunity for both companies.  PIEL brings generators and industrial clients to McPhy, while gaining access to McPhy's storage technology and customers in the energy markets. PIEL will also benefit from additional financing that will enable the company to accelerate projects under development.

"I am particularly pleased to welcome Robert Rasoini, with his deep experience in electrolysis and hydrogen, to McPhy's management team," continues Mauberger.  "He has lead PIEL for over ten years, and will continue to do so under the aegis of McPhy Italia."  

"The integration of these two systems enables us to put an ultra-flexible offer on the market for our clients," explains Adamo Screni, Executive Vice President of Sales, member of the management team and president of McPhy Energy's new Italian subsidiary.  "We can hereby facilitate access to hydrogen on-site for industrial hydrogen users, by creating a very clean, straightforward and economical offer that is much more attractive than current solutions.  For the energy storage market, this is an "all-in-one" solution, which optimizes an installation's global yield."

Coming a few months after the opening of its German subsidiary (July 2012), this acquisition confirms the acceleration of McPhy Energy's expansion and its position as an international leader in the hydrogen market.

The acquisition was managed by Gianni-Origoni-Grippo-Capelli Partners (Rome).

Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
