ScottishPower Renewables is preparing to roll out a clean energy project courtesy of comprehensive research on hydrogen production and consumption as a renewable fuel. The facility that will be testing this technology is in Glasgow with some help from the stable renewables like solar energy. The project dubbed “Green Hydrogen for Glasgow” is a product of the agreement among ITM Power, ScottishPower Renewables, and BOC, which are looking forward to positive results from the performance of this technology.
The Green Hydrogen program will be depending on ITM Power and BOC for supporting renewable energy, which will help the company prepare its systems for the production of hydrogen that is convertible to fuel by burning. The companies anticipate the project to start supplying energy to the commercial market by 2021.
This program aims to provide renewable, eco-friendly fuel to companies, local governments, and giant trucks. The program is in line with the Scottish agreement for energy and climatic change regulations. This strategy embeds it to collaborate with the electric car and hydrogen vehicle industries while reducing emissions.
The head of ScottishPower Renewables, Lindsay McQuade, explained that although electrification of systems may help scrap off the pollutive fossil fuels, the strategy must rotate all around the country before any projections about the future emission levels come to a conclusive end. Lindsay agrees with the replacement of heavy trucks with their electric substitutes.
Lindsay revealed that the partnership with ITM Power and BOC’s likes would help the program cover the three dimensions of industrial growth: manufacturing, supply, and spread. She added that the technology would be able to meet the energy demands for a fleet of cars. Additionally, the country will lower greenhouse gas emissions by a considerable percentage.
ITM Power’s president Graham Cooley expressed his contentment in partnering with these companies on such a crucial program. He explained that the program considers the potential of Glasgow in replacing the pollutive fuels in the transportation and production industries. A memorable moment for Scotland will be utilizing its local renewables to feed its citizens’ electricity hunger and businesses.
Finally, BOC’s representative explained that introducing the hydrogen technology in Scotland among the renewables would help transition the country to renewable energy at a fast speed. The representative stated that they intend to partner with more companies to achieve a 100 percent transition to clean energy.
