Scope pilot projects to further detail, including electrolyser sizing in MW, electrolyser technology, delivery mechanism and frequency (tube trailer deliveries per week, pipework infrastructure sizing), green electricity volumes, specific offtake volumes per partner offtaker, LCOH and techno-econometric modelling, identify HSE considerations and skills gaps (list not exhaustive)..

Identify funding schemes and mechanisms with strategic fit and initiate application for funding, if applicable. SHIPPING VOLUME POTENTIAL: Given Felixstowe is the UK’s busiest container port. Initiating a deep dive study on potential shipping volumes for hydrogen and derivatives would prove beneficial to engage relevant stakeholders and attract inward investment opportunities.
