H100 Fife has passed the initial screening submission process for Ofgem’s annual Network Innovation Competition, and a full bid for funding will be submitted this summer.
If successful, SGN will build a 100% zero-carbon hydrogen network in Levenmouth, producing hydrogen via an electrolysis plant powered by the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult’s nearby offshore wind turbine.
The proposed hydrogen production and storage system and heating network will run alongside the current natural gas syste. ■
