Othersphere Explorer 101 - Offtakers


Ensuring sufficient market demand is essential for any infrastructure project, and hydrogen is no different.

But a key challenge facing project developers today is finding and engaging offtakers for lower GHG hydrogen, especially those willing to sign long-term offtake agreements.

At Othersphere, we're focused on simplifying this complex challenge. Our Othersphere Explorer tool is designed to empower developers by providing instant assessments of potential offtakers accessible from any project site around the globe, and how competitive various hydrogen production technologies will be in serving them.


๐ŸŒ Today

Our tool currently models delivered prices to over 8,000 industrial facilities, including refineries, ammonia plants, methanol plants, ports, and steel mills (yellow points).


๐Ÿš€ In progress

We are currently adding fueling stations and airports (white points), adding over half a million emerging hydrogen demand locations.


๐Ÿ” Future

We have a number of other offtaker types queued up for integration, and so please reach out if you have suggestions or simply want to learn about how we source and process this complex data.


๐Ÿค Collaboration

If you're a project developer or offtaker navigating these challenges, we're here to help. Please reach out to explore@othersphere.io or schedule a demo to learn more.

Topography is one of the many variables within the Othersphere Explorer tool used to reveal and diligence optimal siting of sustainable infrastructure projects. To inform this analysis we use licensed data, open data, and novel datasets we have created or augmented. Our topography data is an example of the latter, where we built upon the exceptional work within the Multi-Error-Removed Improved-Terrain Digital Elevation Model (MERIT DEM).


๐Ÿ” Augmented for massive-scale analysis

To make this sophisticated dataset even more accessible, we have introduced tiling to the MERIT DEM. Each tile offers detailed elevation and ruggedness data, enhancing usability for systematic geographical analyses.


๐Ÿš€ Tackling climate must be a group effort

We are excited to release this tiled dataset derived from MERIT DEM, adhering to licensing requirements and aiming to benefit the broader community working on topographical challenges. This data is provided as a parquet file (~4.5GB)ย and is access through Google Cloud Storage. Please click here to learn more about setting up a Google account to access the data and here to learn more about gsutil for downloading files. Alternatively, please contact explore@othersphere.io can we can work with you to determine other file delivery options.


Data Release 001 - Topography

Multi-Error-Removed Improved-Terrain Digital Elevation Model (MERIT DEM) is a sophisticated dataset that addresses terrain issues common in other mapping efforts.


๐Ÿš€ Weโ€™re live! ๐Ÿš€

After months of development and refinement, we're thrilled to unveil Othersphere Explorer. Our tool reveals the ideal locations to build hydrogen production assetsโ€”where economics will be best, emissions lowest, and projects will be a beneficial fit with local surroundings.

Weโ€™ve built Othersphere Explorer to give project developers, financiers, and offtakers a whole new way to seek new opportunities, manage portfolios, and assess competitiveness.

This is powered by the underlying Othersphere platform, our patent-pending global search engine for high performance, sustainable infrastructure.

None of the above would have been possible without the companies and teams who provided invaluable feedback during our beta program, our financial supporters (Breakthrough Energy , Active Impact Investments, Thin Line Capital, Keiki Capital, and KDX Management LLC), and the many others who have guided us along the way.

If you are working on hydrogen projects, or simply trying to separate fundamentals and fiction in this complex, fast-moving spaceโ€”weโ€™re here to help!
