Hydrogen

Over the last few years, the benefits of Hydrogen for the global energy system and more specifically it playing a major role in the decarbonisation of cities, industries & communities has become increasingly clear.

Government & Public Sector focus and investment within the Hydrogen market to drive & incentivise both the demand for & the supply of Hydrogen is increasingly being matched by Private Sector investment. Beyond net-zero aspirations the economic opportunity has become significant and this has seen accelerated & intensified focus on the development of infrastructure projects particularly across the following industry segments:

power to mobility

Power to Mobility (P2M):
Manufacturing hydrogen refuelling stations for cars, buses, vans & refuse vehicles

Power to Industry

Power to Industry (P2I):
Hydrogen & natural gas mixing infrastructure for power generation on chemical plants

Power to Fuels

Power to Fuels (P2F):
Integration & manufacture of complex high-pressure hydrogen systems on behalf of OEMs

Power to Gas

Power to Gas (P2G):
Hydrogen grid injection projects & renewable P2G for mobile bulk carriage of hydrogen

Power to Power Icon

Power to Power (P2P):
Engineering support & root cause analysis for hydrogen installations

Green Hydrogen from renewable energy using Electrolysis technology has been a particular early focus within the Power to Mobility sector (P2M). Emphasis on the development of Production, Storage and Distribution Hubs by central government and local public authorities has driven the establishment of refuelling facilities across the automotive and rapid transit transport sectors.

Blue Hydrogen, where natural gas is split into hydrogen and CO2 either by Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) or Auto Thermal Reforming (ATR) and the CO2 captured through a process called Carbon Capture Usage and Storage (CCUS) has a critical part to play in the decarbonisation of
the oil and gas industry and is a central theme within the OGUK and UK Government’s North Sea Transition Deal.

Both Green and Blue Hydrogen have an important part to play in the Domestic & Commercial Heating marketplaces as well as other key industrial processes and heavy transportation.

In addition to this, the potential for Pink Hydrogen – made via electrolysis but using Nuclear Energy as its source of power will also be key. Within the UK’s 10 Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution Point 3 talks to further investment in the Nuclear industry as a means of unlocking efficient production of hydrogen and synthetic fuels.

The conversion of Green Hydrogen to Ammonia for easy transport to overseas markets where it can be converted back into Hydrogen will also be an important marketplace for those more advanced economies moving forward as they seek to support the development of hydrogen at scale elsewhere in the world.

Hydrogen Production from Agricultural Waste and Plastic Waste is also an emerging marketplace supplementing the sources of supply already mentioned.

Beyond the UK and within Continental Europe the Netherlands, Germany & France are at the forefront of implementing in-country Hydrogen strategies and committing significant funding to the development of industrial and transport decarbonisation projects.

Since 2016, Hydrasun has successfully completed a range of hydrogen projects including design, engineering installation & commissioning.
