Also crucial:

Ammonia is progressing with Yara

Partnerships with Shell for Hydrogen

Replication for Leuna to help standardisation

Partnerships include Scottish power and electrolyser oil and gas

Strong outlook green hydrogen and long duration energy storage

Going forward ITMs second gigafactory opens at the end of 2023 with further automation and capacity helping increase output and decrease delivery times
