Hydrogen projects among winners of £90m funding to cut emissions

Hydrogen is a low or zero emission alternative to fossil fuels, which could be used to power industry and transport but is currently difficult and expensive to produce in bulk

The government has announced a £90 million package to support projects, including hydrogen, that can help reduce emissions from homes and heavy industry and support the UK's 2050 net zero goal.

Hydrogen is a low or zero emission alternative to fossil fuels, which could be used to power industry and transport but is currently difficult and expensive to produce in bulk.

A total of £28 million will support the development of hydrogen production, including two of Europe’s first hydrogen plants - one on the banks of the Mersey and the second planned to be located near Aberdeen – as well as technology to harness offshore wind off the Grimbsy coast to power electrolysis and produce hydrogen.
