Ryse Hydrogen has pledged to work with the Scottish Government and local authorities to make the North East of Scotland a world leader in hydrogen.
The UK company’s pledge comes as the Scottish Government today announced a £62m Energy Transition Fund support package to help deliver a net zero future.
“We praise the Scottish Government on its investment in zero carbon energy, and particularly its pledge to fund a hydrogen hub at Aberdeen,” Jo Bamford, Executive Chairman of Ryse Hydrogen, said.
“The Energy Transition Fund will be critical in attracting private investment in exciting new technologies. Ryse Hydrogen is exploring numerous opportunities to set up a green hydrogen production plant in the Aberdeen area, and our partners Wrightbus are already committed to delivering hydrogen powered buses to the city later this year.
In April, Bamford revealed plans for a 3,000-strong hydrogen bus fleet in the UK, which he believes will kick start the green hydrogen economy, potentially creating 1,000 green jobs.
