RWE has announced the signing of a contract with professional services firm Jacobs to investigate the production and supply of green hydrogen at the Pembroke Power Station site. The study will take four months, completing in March 2022, and include investigations into the feasibility of initially installing a 100 megawattelectrolyser to produce green hydrogen from local and grid connected renewable energy. The project has the potential to grow to several gigawatts in scale, linked to floating offshore wind in the Celtic Sea, and would become one of the UK’s largest green hydrogen plants in development. The feasibility study will also look at the possibility of supplying green hydrogen for various transport and decarbonisation uses in Pembrokeshire. The knowledge and experience gained from this study will enable a better understanding of the practicalities and economics of the entire RWE project, and will be an important precursor to a funding application under the UK Government’s Net Zero Hydrogen Fund next Spring. The feasibility study has been partly funded by South Wales Industrial Cluster; a consortium of Wales’ major industry, energy, infrastructure, law, academic and engineering organisations of which RWE is a key member. The cluster was successful in securing support from the public and private sector to develop a range of partner decarbonisation deployment projects for the region.
