(AOF) – Lhyfe and Centrica have agreed to jointly develop offshore renewable green hydrogen in the UK, a first for this country. The two companies have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) that could accelerate the development of green hydrogen as part of the country’s energy transition. As part of this agreement, Lhyfe and Centrica will study the possibility of combining their expertise in order to collaborate on a pilot site for the production of green hydrogen in the southern North Sea.
The pilot project will aim to combine Lhyfe’s expertise in renewable green hydrogen production with Centrica’s experience in gas storage and infrastructure, to ensure that the hydrogen produced can be stored and used. safely in the UK.
The two companies will also explore the possibility of an additional partnership to deploy the technology on a larger scale alongside offshore wind power generation.
Renewable green hydrogen combined with offshore wind is set to play an increasingly important role in the UK’s energy mix, due to the rapid expansion expected over the next decade in both areas.
