About the HTP


Who we are

The Hydrogen Territories Platform (HTP) is devised as an interregional platform that will help participants understand how regions can successfully replicate the BIG HIT project concept of hydrogen-based integrated local energy systems, in their respective territories. This is delivered by providing information and methodologies for the implementation and deployment of hydrogen and fuel cell (HFC) technologies in similarly isolated or island territories.

The Platform is chaired by the Foundation for Hydrogen in Aragon (FHA) and the Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Association (SFHCA), in the framework of the BIG HIT project and with the support of their project partners.


Hydrogen Territories

A Hydrogen Territory is defined here as an isolated or remote territory aiming to demonstrate deployment of FCH technologies in an integrated manner. The objective is to support decarbonisation of the territory or region across multiple sectors (e.g. heat, power, mobility, industry), while demonstrating also the wider socio-economic benefits of the BIG HIT concept to support local job creation, innovation, training and skills development and ultimately development of the local economy. HTP members would aim to deploy and demonstrate the entire hydrogen value chain into a local ecosystem, that is, generation of hydrogen from locally available renewable sources, supply & distribution and local end-use of hydrogen across several local end-user applications.

The BIG HIT project and the Orkney Islands as an example of Hydrogen Territory



The main objective of the HTP is to ensure the replicability of the BIG HIT project concept, and particularly replication of business models, based on the use of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in integrated local energy systems developed in the framework of the BIG HIT project. The platform will serve as a future network of knowledge transfer after the project-end.

A website platform and a modelling toolkit have been created to share the main lessons learned during the project, intended as a “learning by doing” tool to replicate the BIG HIT concept to other territories.
