The Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply 2 Competition aims to provide funding for projects that can help develop a wide range of innovative low-carbon hydrogen supply solutions.
The competition aims to support innovation in the supply of hydrogen, reducing the costs of supplying hydrogen, bringing new solutions to the market, and ensuring that the UK continues to develop world leading hydrogen technologies for a future hydrogen economy. It follows on from the first Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply Competition. The competition forms part of the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP).
Up to £60 million will be competitively awarded to projects that can help develop a wide range of innovative low-carbon hydrogen supply solutions.
The competition will be delivered via 2 streams:
Stream 1 is expected to run over 2 phases.
Phase 1 will support the development of feasibility studies with technology readiness levels between 4 and 6, valued at up to £300,000 per project.
Phase 2 will down select projects from Phase 1 and support demonstrations at up to £6 million per project.
Stream 1 Phase 1 is now open to applications. View the notice on Contracts Finder.
Stream 2 will support demonstration of projects that are closer to market with technology readiness levels between 6 and 7. This could support projects with up to £10 million per project to demonstrate the hydrogen supply opportunities.
Stream 2 is now open to applications. View the notice on Contracts Finder.
