With this, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed between TTP and PlusZero in order to expand the capacity of its electrolyser facility in the Western Isles becoming a major player in the UK hydrogen economy.

The deal signals the start of a research and development phase between the two companies to deliver a new generation demonstrator electrolyser that addresses current scalability challenges in the green hydrogen sector.

David Amos, Managing Director at PlusZero, said, “PlusZero are working with some of the most experienced and creative people in the Green Hydrogen sector to make hydrogen happen.

“Together with TTP, we hope to demonstrate that a rapid transition to a clean energy future is within grasp.”

Charles Cooke, Sustainable Energy Technology Lead at TTP, said, “The Step Change partnership with PlusZero provides an ideal testbed as our technology emerges from the lab.

“Testing in the context of PlusZero’s ongoing operations in the Western Isles will ensure that the electrolyser integrates seamlessly with existing infrastructure to enable efficient and reliable hydrogen generation and support the adoption of green hydrogen.”

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.
