About Hydrogen

Hydrogen is a chemical energy carrier that will play a key role in the energy transition

It has characteristics that are beneficial as we look to build a clean, cost effective resilient, safe energy system



Hydrogen is the most abundant element on the planet and can be produced from any primary energy source including hydrocarbons and renewables


Low Carbon

Hydrogen can be produced and used with low to zero carbon emissions 



Hydrogen can be utilised across the energy system in power, heat, industry and transport applications



Hydrogen can be  stored in large quantities over long periods of time. Energy storage is essential for a resilient energy system



As with any chemical carrier, hydrogen is low risk under the right safety management regulations and protocols. Hydrogen has been safely used for industrial applications over many decades
