NZTC secures £200k to fast-track UK-German hydrogen export


The Net Zero Technology Centre (NZTC) has received £200,000 ($242,000) from the Scottish Government for research to demonstrate the potential of exporting hydrogen from Scotland to Germany.

The research aims to bring together key learnings from projects such as NZTC’s Hydrogen Backbone Link and the ‘AquaDuctus’ initiative, a gigawatt-scale offshore hydrogen pipeline in the German North Sea that will connect offshore green hydrogen supply with the European mainland.

Funded by the Scottish Government’s Energy Transition Fund (ETF), NZTC’s Hydrogen Backbone Link explored the critical hydrogen transport infrastructure required to deliver a cost-effective pipeline solution between Scotland and Europe.

The research will highlight the advantages of an integrated pan-North Sea offshore hydrogen pipeline network for harnessing NW Europe’s offshore wind potential. This effort aims to streamline spatial and infrastructure planning while fostering collaboration among countries to create a unified Europe hydrogen strategy.
