Update 19 May 2022

Stream 1 Phase 1 and Stream 2 are closed to applications and contracts have been awarded. We have published summaries of the successful projects.

The Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply 2 Competition aims to support innovation in the supply of hydrogen, reducing the costs of supplying hydrogen, bringing new solutions to the market, and ensuring that the UK continues to develop world leading hydrogen technologies for a future hydrogen economy. It follows on from the first Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply Competition. The competition forms part of the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP).

Up to £60 million will be competitively awarded to projects that can help develop a wide range of innovative low-carbon hydrogen supply solutions.

The competition is delivered via 2 streams.

Stream 1

Stream 1 is expected to run over 2 phases.

Phase 1 supports the development of feasibility studies with technology readiness levels between 4 and 6, valued at up to £300,000 per project.

Phase 2 will down select projects from Phase 1 and support demonstrations at up to £6 million per project.

Stream 1 Phase 1 is closed to applications and we have published summaries of the successful projects.

Stream 2

Stream 2 will support demonstration of projects that are closer to market with technology readiness levels between 6 and 7. This could support projects with up to £10 million per project to demonstrate the hydrogen supply opportunities.

Stream 2 is closed to applications and we have published summaries of the successful projects.

A virtual Stakeholder Engagement Day was held on 8 June 2021 to provide an opportunity to understand more about the competition and to ask questions. We have published the slide pack and questions and answers from the session here.
