The H100 Fife project is intended to provide critical evidence for a potential zero-carbon energy source, helping to inform the UK’s long-term policy decisions for decarbonisation.

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.
