ScottishPower unveils plans for UK’s largest electrolyser

ScottishPower has today (12th April) unveiled plans for what it says will be the UK’s largest electrolyser to be built on the outskirts of Glasgow, Scotland.

The energy firm has submitted a planning application for a new 20MW electrolyser which would be built close to the UK’s largest onshore windfarm, Whitelee.

The electrolyser is part of a green hydrogen facility that ScottishPower says will be capable of producing eight tonnes of green hydrogen per day – roughly equivalent to fuelling over 550 buses to travel from Glasgow to Edinburgh and back again each day.

The planning application also includes proposals for a combined solar farm, up to 40MW, and battery energy storage scheme, up to 50MW, which along with the facility, will be installed about 5km west of Lochgoin Reservoir and adjacent to the existing Whitelee Extension substation.
