Both offshore wind and hydrogen generation are increasingly seen as central to global decarbonisation. And over the last year we’ve seen a striking increase in the number of linked proposals that seek to develop offshore wind farms that are at least partly devoted to making hydrogen. Most of these schemes envisage generating electricity at the turbine which is then taken onshore via a high voltage undersea cable. This electric power will then be fed into a large electrolyser complex onshore to make hydrogen for various uses.
