Scotland Pushing Ahead With Hydrogen Power

In Energy Voice today: ‘The Scottish Government has recently set out the opportunities for hydrogen in its Energy Networks Vision and is now mapping locations in Scotland where hydrogen projects are best suited.  With Germany already operating the world’s first hydrogen-fuelled train, it would be great if Scotland could be next in line! Hydrogen buses are operating in Aberdeen and will be soon be in Dundee. A passenger ferry powered by fuel cell technology is under construction at Ferguson Marine in Glasgow, and on the Orkney island of Eday, the SurfnTurf project brings together two power sources – tidal and wind – with equipment (ITM Power electrolysers) to convert and store energy as hydrogen and ultimately used to power ferries.’
