BP is targeting 1GW of hydrogen production by 2030, the oil major revealed today (18th March) as it announced plans for what it says will be the UK’s largest blue hydrogen production facility.

Set to be located in Teesside in north east England, the proposed development, H2Teesside, would be a significant step in developing ‎BP’s hydrogen business and would make a major contribution to the UK Government’s target of developing 5GW of hydrogen production by 2030.

The project would capture and send for storage up to two million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO₂) per year, equivalent to capturing the emissions from the heating of one million UK households.
