‘Hydrogen to Heysham’ H2H Project Announced, Promising Low Carbon Hydrogen Gas
30 Aug 2019
EDF Energy R&D has announced a project, H2H or ‘Hydrogen to Heysham’, which will use nuclear power from the Heysham power stations to generate low carbon, low cost hydrogen gas using on-site electrolysers.
The Hydrogen gas will be used for transport and heating fuel as an alternative to fossil fuels. The H2H project is part of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s £20m Hydrogen Supply programme.
The hydrogen gas production is part of EDF Energy’s Generation Electric campaign, which brings together teams from EDF Energy R&D, Heysham Power Stations, Lancaster University, Atkins, European Institute for Energy Research (EIFER) and EDF Group’s Hydrogen subsidiary Hynamics.
The first phase of the plan is a feasibility study to asses the viability of a demonstration plant at Heysham. If successful this could lead to more hydrogen generation plants being created in similar locations elsewhere in the UK.
