Plans for the UK’s first low carbon hydrogen hub that could produce 3TWh of low carbon hydrogen a year from 2025 have moved forward.

Essar Oil is working jointly with Progressive Energy, developer of HyNet North West, on the low carbon hydrogen hub plans which will manufacture hydrogen at the refinery for us across the North West and North Wales region. The hub will initially produce 3TWh of low carbon hydrogen each year from 2025.

This number is expected to triple to 9TWh of hydrogen per annum – the equivalent of energy used for heading across the whole of Liverpool – once a facility twice the size is built.

Follow on capacity growth is planned to reach 80% of the UK Government’s 5GW of low carbon hydrogen production by 2030.

A decision on the application will be made later in the year. Feel free to stay in touch through me and key stakeholders at The Northern Powerhouse, Offshore Wind and Hydrogen Professionals Group
