Low carbon hydrogen could play an important role in decarbonising industry, power, heat and transport. However, for a market to grow, potential users (in any application) need to be confident in supply of sufficient amounts of low carbon hydrogen at a competitive price.
The £20 million Hydrogen Supply programme aims to accelerate the development of low carbon bulk hydrogen supply solutions in the above sectors. It is aimed at projects at a technology readiness level (TRL) of 4 to 7, which could result in lower capital or operating costs when compared to Steam Methane Reformer with Carbon Capture & Storage (SMR+CCS), or improve the capture rates at a comparable cost.
The Phase 2 Hydrogen Supply competition aims to accelerate the development of low carbon bulk hydrogen supply solutions by providing funding for demonstration projects.
Phase 2 is only open to applicants who successfully secured Phase 1 funding.
The deadline to submit proposals for Phase 2 was 23 September 2019.
