A feasibility study that will examine the technical and commercial issues associated with the application of LOHC’s to capture, store, transport and release hydrogen at bulk scale in the UK.
The objectives of this project are to:
  • Outline the possibility of using LOHC for bulk hydrogen sourcing and storage across UK.
  • To determine the best in class LOHC by evaluating the technology and also safety aspects of such chemicals.
  • Arrive at a cost curve of LOHC hydrogen. If beneficial to incorporate this emerging technology into current SMR and storage of Hydrogen plans across GB in order to bring overall costs down.
  • Understand the carbon footprint of the reversible reactions of storing hydrogen in LOHC.
  • Understand the criteria for site selection of LOHC projects.
  • Identify the key barriers, risk assessment and optimized business models for the accelerated commercialization of LOHC based hydrogen.
