Clean Power Hydrogen (CPH2), the developer of a membrane-free electrolyser which generates clean hydrogen has been awarded a £338,000 grant by Innovate UK.
The UK-based company submitted its application to Innovate UK’s Smart Grant Programme in October 2019. The programme is an opportunity to compete for a share of up to £25m to deliver ambitious innovations to significantly impact the UK economy.
“This funding is a significant injection for us as it accelerates the safer, simpler and more sustainable development of our membrane-free electrolyser,” said Andy King, CEO of CPH2.
“It will enable us to improve the system design and build processes for which the outcome of the work will be a commercial scale hydrogen production system.”
“This will be used to disseminate learning, demonstrate performance and safety and move towards full commercialisation of this innovative technology.”
“This funding from Innovate UK is a terrific endorsement of our research and development work which is helping the UK tackle climate change,” said Rodney Brook, Business Development Director who led the bid.
“It provides a tremendous boost to the development of our company and the award is highly motivational for the team to know that the work they are involved in is tackling carbon emissions not only in the UK but globally.”
