ITM Power has joined Hydrogen Ireland (H2IRL) to support facilitating public and business awareness of the potential of hydrogen.
Hydrogen Ireland is a membership body that promotes hydrogen and fuel cells to enable these technologies in Ireland. The body engages the governments on both sides of the border to develop policy and support for hydrogen and its related equipment within the energy transition.
ITM Power plc produces integrated hydrogen energy solutions for grid balancing, energy storage, and renewable hydrogen production. Last month ITM Power officially opened its new factory at Bessemer Park in Sheffield. ITM Power’s Gigafactory has an annual capacity of 1,000 MW (1 GW) of electrolysis equipment which started operation in January this year.
Early this week, Grimsby was selected for FCH JU- funded Oyster project for renewable hydrogen production. The project, which is a consortium of leading companies, including ITM, will investigate the potential of using pipelines to transport hydrogen to shore. ITM Power is responsible for the development of the electrolyser system and the electrolyser trials.
In a separate development, Star Scientific Limited (a hydrogen R&D company based in Australia) has appointed Matthew Hingerty to the role of Deputy Chairman, Deputy CEO and Chief of Business Development. He joined Star Scientific in 2020 as Chief of Communications and Government Relations following years of work as a Ministerial Chief of Staff at both the Federal and State levels of government.
