The Scot2Ger study, led by industry and supported by the public sector, has found that Scotland is perfectly placed to become an exporter of green hydrogen to a ready-made market in Germany. This collaborative study of Scottish production and export potential shows that Scotland can answer the call of the growing German market for clean, green hydrogen as early as 2025. It concludes that Scotland’s renewable energy and hydrogen capabilities could supply globally significant demand as Germany fast-tracks the switch from fossil fuels.
The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report was released today. The report finds that 2010-2019 average annual global greenhouse gas emissions were at their highest levels in human history, but the rate of growth has slowed.
“It’s now or never, if we want to limit global warming to 1.5°C (2.7°F),” said IPCC Working Group III Co-Chair Professor Jim Skea. “Without immediate and deep emissions reductions across all sectors, it will be impossible.”
The Working Group III report on Climate Change 2022: Mitigation of Climate Change provides an updated global assessment of climate change mitigation progress and pledges, and examines the sources of global emissions. It explains developments in emission reduction and mitigation efforts, assessing the impact of national climate pledges in relation to long-term emissions goals.
SHFCA member SSE Renewables has today released details for 2000 tonnes per year of green hydrogen production at their existing Gordonbush Wind Farm, near Brora in the Highlands of Scotland. The proposed development consists of a green hydrogen production facility and a battery storage system which will be located within the existing infrastructure of their 110MW Gordonbush Wind Farm. During peak production it is anticipated that approximately 8 tonnes of green hydrogen would be produced per day.
The Flotta Hydrogen Hub is a new £multi-billion project proposal to create a green hydrogen hub on the island of Flotta in Orkney, powered by offshore wind projects in the seas to the west of Orkney. This green hydrogen from offshore wind could be exported to Europe or other destinations, blended into the UK gas grid at St Fergus, and drive forward an international maritime green hydrogen refuelling hub. This significant inward investment would utilise a repurposed area of the Flotta Terminal to offer new employment opportunities for existing workers, with 25+ years of operation and a maritime low carbon refuelling port ensuring that Orkney remains at the heart of the UK's evolving energy revolution.
Cenex-LCV and Cenex-CAM bring together Low Carbon Vehicle and Connected Automated Mobility into a technology showcase exhibition. We have over 170 exhibitors showcasing their insights and innovations and over 4,000 attendees visiting the event. The event includes an extensive seminar programme which includes a variety of speakers to educate our delegates, as well the opportunity to network and use our Ride&Drive activities.
