New partnership strives to show benefits of thriving green hydrogen sector


A group of different organisations from industry and academia have come together to show the benefits of a thriving green hydrogen sector would bring to Scotland and the UK.

Launched on 13 September, the Hydrogen Skills Partnership consists of ScottishPower, ITM Power, Arcola Energy, Robert Gordon University, Energy Transition Zone, Skills Development Scotland, Aberdeen University, North East Scotland College and the Hydrogen Accelerator.

It will see the partners collaborate to assess the readiness of the UK supply chain when it comes to supporting green hydrogen projects and highlight the potential economic value for the domestic supply chain. They will also seek to show the potential for green, sustainable skills and high-value jobs emerging from a future hydrogen sector.

Live projects will be used as case studies, while commercial insights from this work will support academic, public and private sectors to maximise the positive impacts emerging from the growth of a green hydrogen economy.
