Power Generation News – Early April 2021

Plans have been submitted for a major “green hydrogen” scheme near Glasgow.

The application by ScottishPower includes a 20MW electrolyser, a device which splits water into hydrogen and oxygen using electrical energy – in this case, via wind and solar power.

The planned facility will be located near the UK’s largest onshore wind farm, Whitelee, owned by ScottishPower.

The project includes a combined solar and battery energy storage scheme to help power the electrolyser.  ScottishPower said the facility would be able to produce up to eight tonnes of hydrogen per day.
