Seven projects to produce low carbon hydrogen receive UK Government support

The low-carbon hydrogen sector in the UK will get a further boost with over £21 million of government support for seven projects to make green fuel, powering up local transport and businesses from Suffolk to Shetland.

Four projects will develop plans for new hydrogen production plants, to supply cleaner fuel to companies across a range of industries – from pharmaceuticals to automotive, with the aim of boosting UK energy security for the long term.

The remaining projects will be located in Aberdeen, Tees Valley and Suffolk. Upon completion, they will help to secure the UK’s energy supply by producing more home-grown hydrogen for industry and transport, with projects including: 

Suffolk Hydrogen run by Hydrab Power, which will make green hydrogen for low carbon service vehicles at the Sizewell C nuclear site.

Tees Valley Hydrogen run by Exolum, which will build a new hydrogen refuelling station to help supply the local transport sector.

Aberdeen Hydrogen Hub run by BP and Aberdeen City Council, which will provide cleaner fuel for the local fleet of electric buses.

“We are cementing the UK’s place as a world leader in hydrogen” said Secretary of State for Energy Security Claire Coutinho. “The new projects we’re funding across the country will boost our supply of clean homegrown energy for use in buses, trains and local businesses. By backing the UK hydrogen industry, we can support over 12,000 jobs and up to £11 billion in private investment by 2030.”

The seven projects have the potential to increase UK capacity to make hydrogen by 800 MW, supporting local communities to cut their emissions while moving towards net zero.
