East Coast Hydrogen Feasibility Report


The highlights of the report include:

  • East Coast Hydrogen has the potential to connect up to 7GW of hydrogen production by 2030, alone exceeding the UK Government’s 5GW by 2030 target in a single project. It represents an unmissable opportunity for government and the private sector to work together in delivering on our ambitious decarbonisation targets.
  • East Coast Hydrogen can use the natural assets of the North of England, including existing and potential hydrogen storage facilities, and build on the hydrogen production in two of the UK’s largest industrial clusters in the North East and North West, in turn ensuring significant private sector investment in the UK’s industrial heartlands.
  • This would be the first step in the conversion of our national gas grid to hydrogen and will act as a blueprint for subsequent conversions across the UK.
  • The project will also demonstrate the innovation, engineering capabilities and economic opportunity in the North, and create tens of thousands of highly skilled Green jobs in the future hydrogen economy."
