Hydrogen is fast being recognised as having a potentially revolutionary role to play in helping Scotland and the UK to reach net zero carbon emission targets. While other fuels such as petrol, diesel or natural gas produce harmful carbon dioxide emissions when used, hydrogen emits only water vapour into the atmosphere.

The production of green hydrogen takes the opportunity a step further. It uses zero carbon electricity from renewable sources such as wind power to separate water into its component parts of oxygen and hydrogen in a process called electrolysis. The hydrogen produced as a result can then be stored and distributed to potential transport, heating and manufacturing customers.

With an operational renewable portfolio of 4GW and a development pipeline of around 11GW of new onshore and offshore renewable projects, SSE Renewables is well placed to provide the future renewable power needed to power a green hydrogen economy.
