Why green hydrogen?

Green hydrogen gets its name because the process to create the hydrogen is powered by green sources like solar or wind power. These renewable sources power an electrolyser which separates water into hydrogen and oxygen gases and then the hydrogen can be used, distributed or stored.

We are committed to helping the UK decarbonise and reach its net zero targets. While electrification offers the majority of the solution, there are still some parts of the economy that are hard to electrify, and that’s where green hydrogen comes in. Green hydrogen is incredibly versatile and can be used to support a variety of industries such as steel works, distilleries, heavy-duty transport and businesses using high temperature processes.

In order for us to reach these climate change targets, we need to start developing and delivering green hydrogen now to the places where electrification can’t reach.
