Projects that have been awarded demonstration funding through the Hydrogen Supply Competition and the Industrial Fuel Switching Competition have been announced. The two BEIS competitions aim to tackle emissions from homes and heavy industry. UK HFCA member ITM (in collaboration with Orsted, Phillips 66 and Element Energy) were among the winners for their Gigastack project. Visiting the project in Grimsby earlier this month, Kwasi Kwarteng, Minister for Business, Energy and Clean Growth, said:
“Cleaning up emissions from industry and housing is a big challenge but today’s £90 million investment will set us on the right path as we develop clean technologies like hydrogen. […] This is an important part of our world-leading efforts in eliminating our contribution to climate change by 2050 while also growing our economy, creating up to 2 million green collar jobs across the country by 2030.”
