Electrolysis to play a key role in Hydrogen Roadmap for UK
More exciting news from ITM-Power about the UKH2 Mobility Partnership. Some of the key points are:
- The hydrogen production mix in the roadmap for 2030 is 51% water electrolysis, 47% steam methane reforming (SMR) and 2% existing capacities.
- The water electrolysis, using renewable electricity, includes both on-site production at the HRS and centralised production with distribution to the HRS.
- Water electrolysis capacity offers significant benefits to the electricity sector in assisting the integration of renewable generating capacity and in providing grid-balancing services.
- The project quantified these benefits and determined that this would have the effect of reducing the cost of hydrogen produced by electrolysis by 20%.
