A contract has been awarded to develop a business case which will explore the development of a sustainable and commercial supply of hydrogen in Aberdeen and create a model which can be adopted by other Scottish cities.

Element Energy will assist with the study, allowing Aberdeen to continue to build on its reputation as a centre of excellence for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

Working with Aberdeen City Council previously on the existing bus projects and new JIVE projects, Element Energy will also identify as part of the study potential locations for a hydrogen hub in addition to outlining the strategic, economic, financial and commercial objectives whilst determining the opportunities to seek private investment in the hydrogen market.

The £100,000 study is jointly funded by Aberdeen City Council (with support from the EU’s Interreg Hytrec2 project), Opportunity North East and Scottish Enterprise. The commitment of the three partners demonstrates the city’s ambitions to embrace the future of hydrogen.

A presentation of the business case was made at this week’s supply chain conference, held as part of Aberdeen’s Hydrogen Festival, and organisations can feed into the business case by contacting sophie.lyons@element-energy.co.uk.
