The H2NorthEast project aims to create 1GW of low-carbon blue hydrogen production that will be situated around the Kellas Midstream CATS terminal in Teesside.
It is hoped that by 2027 this will then deliver 355MW of low-carbon hydrogen to local industry with further upscaling potential to 1GW by 2030.
This could be a crucial development for the North Eats of England and the wider UK as the hydrogen produced here can begin decarbonising various industries and promote sustainable practices.
As well as this, it could additionally help supply the increasing demand for hydrogen within the region.
Andy Hessell, Managing Director at Kellas Midstream, said, “The Humber and Teesside industrial regions represent almost 50% of carbon emissions from all UK industrial clusters. Converting to low carbon hydrogen is the only realistic way to decarbonise those industries, and in doing so help the UK achieve its target of net zero emissions by 2050.
“We believe that H2NorthEast can play a leading role in delivering low carbon hydrogen to industries on Teesside at a lower cost through synergies with our CATS facility and by using existing distribution and storage infrastructure.”
Ben Houchen, Tees Valley Mayor, said, “H2NorthEast is a truly forward-thinking initiative that unites the region’s net zero ambitions with infrastructure investment and skills development, helping to further mark us out in the cleaner, safer and healthier industries of the future.
“The project has the potential to upskill existing jobs and create hundreds of new good-quality, well-paid jobs for people across Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool, while boosting our local economy by as much as £300m ($379m).”
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?
If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
