Hydrogen set to play a key role in Humber Cluster Plan

Hydrogen is set to play a key role in the decarbonisation of the Humber through the Humber Cluster Plan, a study which will illustrate how the region can achieve net-zero emissions by 2040, potentially making it the first industrial cluster globally to do so.

SSE Thermal is working with the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), membership organisation CATCH, and seven other businesses, to develop to comprehensive plan which highlights the importance of hydrogen and carbon capture technologies.

Working alongside Equinor, Drax, National Grid Ventures, Centrica, VPI Immingham, British Steel and Phillips 66, SSE Thermal has already submitted a joint funding proposal for the plan to Innovate UK as part of the Government’s Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge Fund scheme.
