Energy firms join forces to develop offshore UK green hydrogen production


European clean energy group Lhyfe will work together with services and solutions specialist Centrica to develop a pilot green hydrogen production site in the Southern North Sea to accelerate green hydrogen as part of the energy transition in the UK.

Having signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the partners will combine their respective expertise to advance the safe storage and utilisation of hydrogen in the UK with an aim to showcase end-to-end hydrogen production, storage and distribution within the country.
