Introducing East Midlands Hydrogen
East Midlands Hydrogen is a new, industry-led initiative that will boost the energy revolution in the East Midlands by growing the UK’s largest inland hydrogen cluster. Plans for regional hydrogen production, distribution and industrial use are gathering momentum and East Midlands Hydrogen will support and accelerate these plans, supporting decarbonisation of industry, mobility and power generation.
We will create new highly skilled jobs and the deliver the training facilities that this growing sector will require. We aim to enable major industries in the area, along with business start-ups and scale-ups, to support the UK’s plans for net zero and energy independence — all while bolstering the levelling up agenda.
East Midlands Hydrogen Footprint
East Midlands Hydrogen covers Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and the northern half of Leicestershire, where there is a concentrated cluster of prospective industrial hydrogen customers, and the potential for large-scale hydrogen production, connected by a section of Cadent's proposed East Coast Hydrogen pipeline.
Hydrogen in the East Midlands
HyMarnham Power has been selected as one of the eleven new production projects to receive funding to generate 9.3MW of power from green hydrogen as part of the UK Government’s Hydrogen Allocation Round funding.
East Midlands Hydrogen — a consortium covering the full hydrogen value chain including hydrogen producers, distributors, industrial end users of hydrogen and local supporters — now stands at 44 members.
Taking to the skies next with East Midlands Hydrogen and MAG East Midlands Airport – it’s such an exciting prospect to have #hydrogen to #decarbonise flights
D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, Cadent, and some of the region’s leading organisations have formed a new industrial partnership called East Midlands Hydrogen, that is poised to become the UK’s largest inland hydrogen cluster.
