The government has announced a £90m drive to cut carbon emissions in industry and homes, in moves to use low carbon alternatives to fossil fuels used by heavy transport and industry. The £90m forms part of the department for business, energy and industrial strategy’s £500m innovation fund, which is dedicated to harnessing and rolling out cutting edge technology to fight climate change. £70m will include funding for two of Europe’s first-ever low carbon hydrogen production plants – the first on the banks of the Mersey, the second planned for near Aberdeen. A third project will develop technology to harness offshore wind off the Grimsby coast to power electrolysis and produce hydrogen.
