The online map of UK hydrogen capabilities has more than 70 data points, covering a range of hydrogen related activities in the UK:
- Hydrogen refuelling stations, with information on status, accessibility, station type, and manufacturer.
- Hydrogen productions plants, with information on availability, process or source of hydrogen, and operator.
- Hydrogen research facilities, categorised into five key areas of expertise: hydrogen production, hydrogen storage, hydrogen safety, scenarios & demonstrations, and hydrogen end-use.
- Demonstration projects funded by the Technology Strategy Board, with a brief summary of the five projects funded for the period 2012–2015.
The online map is compiled by the Energy, Generation and Supply KTN (Knowledge Transfer Network), in collaboration with the government’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, and the Transport KTN.
The map builds on the success of the first UK Hydrogen Capabilities Map, which was developed in January 2012 for the launch of the UKH2Mobility project. This government and cross-industry programme aims to make hydrogen powered travel a reality in the UK.
