Green hydrogen is created from renewable energy, or low-carbon electricity. The process involves putting water through an electrolyser, where it is split into hydrogen and oxygen.
To produce green hydrogen, you need import power and a water source.
The Government’s UK hydrogen strategy update aims to generate up to 10GW of low-carbon hydrogen capacity by 2030. Its vision is to provide cleaner energy for business and domestic use.
Green hydrogen potential
Currently green hydrogen is unlikely to completely replace natural gas as a fuel; H2 projects today typically require a nearby user with a known hydrogen demand.
However, some businesses that have traditionally used large amounts of natural gas – such as road transport providers and industrial manufacturers – may increasingly switch to H2.
At Infinis, we are working with several large corporates and energy partners who are committed to the hydrogen transition. We’re exploring some initial green hydrogen from solar energy projects and looking at new routes to market.
We’re also looking at H2 as an evolving fuel source for our power response assets.
