The Outer Hebrides Energy Hub will establish the initial infrastructure necessary to support the production of Green Hydrogen from renewable energy (Onshore and Offshore Wind).  The Energy Hub will be based around Stornoway Port Authority’s new £50 million Deep Water Terminal and will, in the first instance, supply Green Hydrogen for a 100% conversion of SGN’s 1,400 consumer Stornoway Town Centre Gas Network from propane to hydrogen. 

The UK Government’s £50 million investment will be shared across the following projects:

  • £16m for Islands Centre for Net Zero
  • £11m for Outer Hebrides Energy Hub
  • £2.6m for Creative Islands Wellbeing
  • £4m for Outer Hebrides Destination Development
  • £1m for Orkney World Heritage Gateway
  • £1m for Orkney Vertical Farm
  • £4.4m for Shell-volution
  • £1.5m for TalEntEd Islands
  • £8m for Orkney Research and Innovation Campus

This Pathfinder project will be developed to be replicable in Hydrogen demand centres across the UK. Hydrogen production at the Energy Hub will be scalable to allow export of hydrogen by sea to identified European markets through conversion to containerised ammonia or methanol or by direct pipeline to demand centres on the west coast Scottish mainland.
