The Energy, Generation and Supply KTN, in collaboration with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association and the Transport KTN, have now launched the first UK Hydrogen Capabilities Online Map. The Map showcases the breadth hydrogen infrastructure and associated activities, and will develop and grow as infrastructure and capability evolves.
With over 70 data points, the Map covers the full range of hydrogen related activities in the UK:
- Hydrogen Refuelling Stations – with information on status, accessibility, station type and manufacturer: indicated by blue markers;
- Hydrogen Productions Plants – with information on availability, process / source of hydrogen and operator: indicated by green markers;
- Hydrogen Research Facilities categorised into five key areas of expertise (hydrogen production, hydrogen storage, hydrogen safety, scenarios & demonstrations, and hydrogen end-use): indicated by yellow markers; and
- Technology Strategy Board funded Demonstration Projects – a brief summary of the five projects funded for the period 2012-2015: indicated by pink markers.
Please note that a “Security Warning” pop-up window may appear; make sure that you enable all the content of the web page to access the Map.
This Map builds on the success of the first UK Hydrogen Capabilities Map in banner format which was developed in January 2012 for the launch of the UK H2Mobility project – the Government and cross industry programme to make hydrogen powered travel in the UK a reality.
We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the production of this Map with special thanks to Jon Maytom (BIS), Viola Augstein (EGS KTN), Tessa Darley and Peter Speers (Transport KTN), Ben Todd (Arcola Energy), David Hurren (Air Liquide), Emma Guthrie (Air Products), Stewart Dow (BOC), Graham Hillier (CPI), Charles Purkess (ITM Power), Nigel Holmes (SHFCA), Richard Kemp-Harper (TSB) and Geoff Dutton (STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory).
The Map will be updated periodically as new infrastructure is established, and capability grows. If you have any updates please do not hesitate to contact us.
