08.23.2023 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

August 23, 2023 [bp]- bp’s green hydrogen project HyGreen Teesside has been selected by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) to progress to the next stage of negotiations in its first funding round for green hydrogen projects; Hydrogen Allocation Round 1 (HAR1).


This follows the UK Government’s March 2023 announcement that HyGreen was shortlisted for DESNZ’s Hydrogen Business Model (HBM) and Net Zero Hydrogen Fund (NZHF) programmes, which are intended to support commercial deployment of hydrogen projects and kickstart the low carbon hydrogen economy across the UK.

Aiming to start production in 2026, HyGreen Teesside is planned to be one of the UK’s biggest ‘green’ hydrogen facilities. It is initially targeting 80MW of green hydrogen production, with potential further growth to up to 500 MW by 2030, up to 5% of the UK government’s hydrogen target of 10GW.

The project aims to help fuel the development of Teesside, leading the way for large-scale decarbonisation of heavy transport, airports, ports, and ‎rail in the UK. It will also help carbon intensive sectors in the region, such as chemical and process industries, to decarbonise.

Matt Williamson, UK Head of Hydrogen, bp, said:

“We’re excited to have passed another important milestone towards the development of this ground-breaking project. HyGreen Teesside has the potential to help transform energy use, the economy and skills in the region. At bp, we’re backing hydrogen to help Teesside and the UK decarbonise its industry and mobility.”

bp has recently completed a six-week community consultation on HyGreen Teesside, ensuring that local people, businesses and other stakeholders can have their say on the project. As part of the consultation, bp shared its initial design with the public and organised multiple public information events. Having taken on board community views, bp will now submit a finalised planning application to Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.
