This £20m programme will identify and test innovative approaches to supplying low-carbon hydrogen, and help grow the market. Low carbon hydrogen could play an important role in decarbonising industry, power, heat and transport. However, for a market to grow, potential users (in any application) need to be confident in the supply of sufficient amounts of low carbon hydrogen at a competitive price. The £20 million Hydrogen Supply programme aims to accelerate the development of low carbon bulk hydrogen supply solutions in the above sectors. It is aimed at projects at a technology readiness level (TRL) of 4 to 7, which could result in lower capital or operating costs when compared to Steam Methane Reformer with Carbon Capture & Storage (SMR+CCS), or improve the capture rates at a comparable cost. The programme is now live. If you are interested in applying, please see the guidance document, application form and finance form below. The deadline for potential applicants to register their interest is 21 November 2018, and the deadline to submit proposals is 5 December.The competition is divided into four lots of phases, values as follows Lot 1 - £2m total, up to £500k per project Lot 2 - £2m total, up to £500k per project Lot 3 - £500k total, up to £250k per project Lot 4 - £500k total, up to £250k per project
