Already, the division is reviewing and processing new green hydrogen production projects in the UK, Italy and Canada, where they are holding discussions with local partners.

These locations have already been identified by the firm as key locations for the development and construction of several 25MW hydrogen sites.

Nicholas Wrigley Chairman of First Hydrogen UK, said, “Hydrogen production and procurement is a First Hydrogen strategy that is both timely and important in today’s environment of worldwide energy needs as we transition away from traditional hydrocarbons to the zero-carbon economy.”

Supporting the new division, Rob Campbell from Ballard Power and Peter Williams from INEOS, has been appointed as advisors and non-executive directors.

North American Hydrogen Summit 

H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.

As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.

With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
