Plans for Greater Manchester’s first hydrogen hub unveiled today

Plans for Greater Manchester’s first low-carbon hydrogen hub have been unveiled today (29th March) by Carlton Power.

Set to be located at the Trafford Low Carbon Energy Park, the plans would see sustainable hydrogen fuel produced at scale in the North West and support ambitions to develop Greater Manchester into the world’s first net zero region by 2040.

Manchester Metropolitan University, Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), Trafford Council, Carlton Power, Cadent Gas and Electricity North West will be joining forces to set up the hub, which will be a new addition to Trafford Low Carbon Energy Park – a green energy storage facility, which already consists of a number of net zero industrial projects in support of UK Government objectives.
