H2 Green and Highlands Council aim hydrogen hubs; Suburban buys stake in IH
H2 Green and Highlands Council agreed to develop a green hydrogen network across the Highlands.
H2 Green Limited has signed an MoU with the Highland Council incorporated under the Local Government of Scotland.
The Highland Council and H2 Green have agreed on a vision to create a regional network of green hydrogen hubs across the Scottish Highlands. This infrastructure will accelerate the decarbonisation of the Highlands council area, the largest administrative unit in the UK covering almost a third of Scotland.
Both partners plan to develop a network of green hydrogen hubs – placing hydrogen production, storage and delivery infrastructure at optimal locations across the Scottish Highlands. They will establish commercial agreements for green hydrogen offtake, underpinned by transport decarbonisation initiatives in the Highlands.
The Highland Council will contribute £100,000 to the cost of this initial work.
H2 Green is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Getech, focused on developing and operating green hydrogen hub infrastructure.
Dr Jonathan Copus, CEO of Getech, said, “In line with these goals, we have already announced agreements with Eversholt Rail to accelerate the wide-scale deployment of their hydrogen-powered trains on the Far North and West Highland Lines of Scotland.”
