The Tees Valley Multi Modal Hydrogen Hub 

The study has centred upon Tees Valley to ensure the work is spatially specific rather than abstract. However, the resulting masterplan can be considered a transferable blueprint for such a Hub to be located anywhere in the UK. It has focused upon determining a design that is suitable (able to support fulfilment of the vision), acceptable (able to meet stakeholders’ expectations) and feasible (able to be delivered, in a timely fashion).

The Hub will be comprised of a set of facilities for the production, storage and distribution of green hydrogen3 , linked to a network of hydrogen refuelling stations that will service operational trials across transport modes in the period 2025-2030. Prior to this, opportunities should be taken to introduce “pop-up” demonstrators to test and learn from hydrogen-transport technologies and prepare the Hub for operation. The Hub will also include facilities for knowledge creation, sharing and exploitation as it acts as a living lab that forms part of a national and international network of research and innovation for transport decarbonisation through use of hydrogen.

The Hub will establish the UK as a leader in hydrogen technology and its application in transport. Ultimately the purpose of the Hub will be to deliver evidence to support the use of hydrogen for transport that will inform the DfT’s long term strategy, and the role it may play in supporting the decarbonisation of the transport sector in the UK.
