Green hydrogen is a good alternative to decarbonising and reducing emissions, whilst also utilising excess generation. It is a key contributor to achieving net zero.
Green hydrogen is produced via electrolysis, which imports electricity and water, to split into hydrogen and oxygen. The electricity used in production comes either directly from onsite renewables, or from a sleeved PPA to a grid connected wind or solar farm. We utilise our proprietary iON+ software to control the hydrogen production and optimise the use of renewable generation.
Hydrogen is an exciting energy source and we’re exploring ways to produce it in a commercially viable way. We work with a range of offtakers who are exploring strategies to decarbonise their existing business through fleet services, marine, transport and power.
At Lowestoft Power Park, we’re looking to construct a site comprising up to three hydrogen electrolysers and associated storage. Powered by renewable energy, the hydrogen will be used as decarbonised fuel for local transport fleets on land and sea as part of a smart local ‘energy hub’ in the region. The project was one of only 15 in the UK selected by the Government for a share of the first round of the Net Zero Hydrogen Fund.
We also play a leading role in the Hydrogen Energy Association, reflecting our belief in the potential of this new energy source.
