Potential for hydrogen production off the coast of East Anglia being explored

Research is underway to investigate the potential for hydrogen production off the coast of East Anglia in the UK.

The Bacton Energy Hub: Exploring the potential for hydrogen from the Southern North Sea study, led by Hydrogen East, will research options and scenarios to bring together the region’s offshore gas and offshore wind sectors to produce clean hydrogen at scale for cleaner power, heat and transport fuels supplying the region and beyond.

It aims to provide a detailed map of existing offshore and onshore energy-related infrastructure and develop options and scenarios for where wind farms, gas platforms, subsea pipelines and cables could be integrated or repurposed over time to support hydrogen production, with the Bacton terminal on North Norfolk’s coast being used for injection into the national grid.

The project is well timed following recent announcements such as the Prime Minister’s Ten-Point-Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, together with a wide range of independent research reports across the world, identifying a clear role for hydrogen to support the decarbonisation of heat and transport systems.
