The UK Government is being urged to set cost reduction targets for renewable hydrogen in order to provide cheap energy for consumers.
Wood, of Aberdeen, is teaming up with gas distribution network company SGN to create a "decarbonisation roadmap" for the north-east and east coast of Scotland.
One of Britain's biggest gas networks has called on the Government to allow it to mix 200 times more hydrogen into gas that is pumped into homes across the country, a move that it says would reduce carbon emissions by six million tonnes a year.
The energy transition is an “enormous opportunity for lawyers”, according to the managing counsel for BP North Sea.
Question: Was Aberdeen right to order a new fleet of hydrogen-powered double-decker buses - or was Coventry right to go electric instead?
Recent press coverage of BP’s partnership with Aberdeen, where BP will become the planning and technical adviser on the “net zero vision” for Aberdeen 2045, together with the AREG chairwomen’s EV article on 'A hydrogen future on the horizon’, raised concerns in my mind relating to over-selling hydrogen.
Positioning the UK North Sea for a net zero future will cost more than £430billion, according to a new report from the Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) and consultancy Wood Mackenzie.
The cost of electrolysers have fallen sharply over the last decade, but power-to-gas technologies will not be competitive with fossil-based hydrogen before 2030, panelists told a webinar hosted by CMS law firm.
Current plans to reinforce the power line between Fort Augustus and the Western Isles, via Skye, reminded me of the controversy that arose when the link was created in the 1980s.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a vast impact on people’s lives, as well as on companies around the world.
Next month, Aberdeen is set to become the first city in the world to introduce revolutionary hydrogen powered double-decker buses. This is not the first time Aberdeen has been a world leader in the adoption of hydrogen for transport. The UK’s first hydrogen production and bus refuelling station opened in the city in 2015, and the arrival of these new vehicles will complement Aberdeen’s existing fleet of 10 hydrogen buses and enhance the city’s role as a pioneer in the adoption of green energy for public transport.
As opposition politicians were lambasting government ministers over this year’s school results the economy was noisily crashing round our heads. GDP fell by over 20%, UK debt rose to £2 trillion and unemployment is back on the rise again.
Green hydrogen projects, including a number in the north-east, could generate £320 billion for the UK economy and sustain up to 120,000 jobs by 2050, according to a new study.
The energy sector in Sub-Saharan Africa faces numerous challenges, but there is also an increasing sense of urgency and opportunity for the development of the industry on the continent.
Innovative partnering between oil and gas, renewables, hydrogen and carbon capture can accelerate energy transition, says the UK’s Oil and Gas Authority (OGA).
Chrysaor, the UK’s largest offshore oil and gas producer, is mulling plans for electrification of its North Sea platforms.
The entrepreneur behind plans for a 3,000-strong hydrogen bus fleet in the UK says the alternative fuel can play a strong part in Scotland’s post-Covid recovery.
Hydrogen made from renewable power will be compete on price with producing the gas from fossil fuels within two decades, according to analysis by research firm Wood Mackenzie Ltd.
Three green hydrogen projects have teamed up to try and overcome issues around connecting stakeholders, end users, policymakers and communities.
Last week Philip Dunne MP, Chairman of the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC), wrote to BEIS Secretary Alok Sharma requesting support for developing a Hydrogen Strategy.
Large-scale hydrogen storage can enable the rise of renewables while bringing benefits to local authorities, transport companies and electricity suppliers.
Hydrogen could be worth as much as £18bn to the UK economy by 2035, according to a landmark new report.
With the human population fast approaching the 8 billion mark and as the great energy transition gains momentum, so the pressure to find wholly sustainable, high efficiency low-carbon replacements for fossil fuels and to stem rising greenhouse gas levels mounts.
Energy services firm Petrofac has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Storegga Geotechnologies in an effort to drive new clean energy developments.
The UK continental shelf (UKCS) has a “significant role” to play in helping governments achieve their net zero targets in the coming decades, a new report said.
