The UK Government has announced £90m in funding to help cut emissions from industrial processes and the built environment, including the backing of two low-carbon hydrogen production plants. The UK Government has announced that £70m will be spent to fund low-carbon hydrogen production plants near Mersey and Aberdeen, while a third project will use offshore windfarms off the Grimsby coast to produce clean hydrogen. The funds will explore and trial technologies that can switch industrial production from fossil fuels to renewables in industries including glass and cement production. An additional £20m will be used to fund projects to cut domestic household emissions through local smart energy projects. More than 250,000 people could have their homes powered by renewables as a result, with the Government claiming that electricity bills could be halved for those who partake in the trials.

Europe’s “first ever” green hydrogen production plants, a clutch of smart home energy schemes, and efforts to switch carbon intensive industry to run on renewables are among projects sharing in a £90m low carbon energy funding boost announced by the government today. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) said some £70m of the funding would go towards developing several green hydrogen projects, including two of Europe’s first ever low carbon H2 production plants, with one situated on the banks of the Mersey and a second planned near Aberdeen.
