Four feasibility projects supporting the innovation and development of green hydrogen have been granted £500,000 in funding by the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC).
Through the Hydrogen Innovation Scheme of the Scottish Government, EMEC has been granted the funding. This scheme aims to promote hydrogen innovation, storage, and distribution, and a total of 32 Scottish projects will receive £7 million ($8.6 million) in funding.
EMEC is involved in a consortia consisting of four projects that will investigate technology concepts supporting offshore and off-grid hydrogen production, sea water electrolysis, and the use of an artificial intelligence model to enhance hydrogen logistics.
Matthew Storey, EMEC’s Hydrogen Development Manager, said, “Using our experience in applied hydrogen R&D, sustainable fuels and techno economics, EMEC will be delivering this work in partnership with skilled teams across the project consortia.
