The UK’s first free-to-access Hydrogen Projects Map has been launched by the country’s leading hydrogen trade association.
The Hydrogen Energy Association has brought together the full bread hydrogen projects across the value chain – mapping for the first time, the swell of incredible work going into the hydrogen economy in the UK.
The map shines a light on projects which are post-FEED or have been shortlisted for public funding, raising awareness among investors, governments and key players in the hydrogen industry.
With more than 100 members covering the full value chain, the HEA’s map reflects projects across low-carbon production, hydrogen infrastructure, hydrogen mobility use, commercial and industrial use and hydrogen for domestic heating use.
Celia Greaves, HEA CEO and Founder, said:
“We are committed to spreading this resource far and wide, fostering industry collaboration, building a strong UK hydrogen narrative, and creating commercial and investment opportunities for the hydrogen industry.
“This map is a vital resource to evidence how the UK Industry acts on its ambition, and we expect it to grow rapidly as increasing numbers of projects move forward.”
The HEA has mapped more than 70 low carbon hydrogen production projects that are in operation or advancing quickly towards final investment decisions. The first wave of large-scale electrolytic hydrogen projects will be in operation in 2025. Aberdeen H2 Hub (400MW), Cromarty Hydrogen Hub (300MW), Lowestoft hydrogen production facility (200MW) and Hybont (250MW) are some of these pioneering projects
Other notable projects include:
• Protium's industrial use project partnering with Budweiser Brewing Group UK&I – a pioneering example of Hydrogen decarbonising a hard-to-bate sector.
• Project Union – various projects to connect hydrogen production, storage and demand to enable net zero and empower a UK hydrogen economy.
• Key hydrogen mobility examples such as Fleetwide Conversion for Aberdeen City Council, and Teesside Transport Hub with various HEA members involved, including ULEMCo Ltd.
As a live map, projects are being added all the time. If companies would like their project – which must have completed its FEED and / or been shortlisted for public funding – to be featured, they can submit information here https://ukhea.co.uk/uk-hydrogen-project-map.
