East Midlands Hydrogen – Industrial partnership now stands at 44 member organisations.

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.

With clear ambitions to accelerate the development of, and attract investment to, the growing cluster of concentrated hydrogen demand, production and distribution infrastructure – the East Midlands is set to harness hydrogen in the transition to net zero.

Demand for hydrogen from the industrial members is forecasted to exceed 10TWh by 2040 covering 70 sites across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and northern Leicestershire. These 70 sites alone, emit 61% of all the CO2 emissions for industrial, commercial and power generation gas demand in this sub region.  Switching to low carbon hydrogen could abate these emissions.

A multiplicity of industrial gas users from major food and drink manufacturers (Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company, Nestle, British Sugar) healthcare (Boots, NHS Estates) heavy construction materials (Hanson, Aggregate Industries), flexible power generators (Mercia Power), and transportation (East Midlands Airport, Toyota, Rolls Royce) will all need hydrogen to continue to operate in the East Midlands whilst aiming to decarbonise by 2050. Failure to decarbonise industrial processes could result in the loss of industrial capacity and associated jobs in this region.

There are also 7 prospective hydrogen producers in the consortium and localised hydrogen production is forecasted to exceed 650GW of capacity, taking advantage of the local infrastructure to maximise imported renewable energy.

Hydrogen is essential to delivering net zero in the UK. Partnership is key if we are to act now to scale up hydrogen production and innovative, technology solutions to deliver cost effective deep decarbonisation.

By connecting supply and demand through a 100% hydrogen pipeline network, this region is poised to become the UK’s largest inland hydrogen cluster.
