Scotland: Tour of the Aberdeen City Hydrogen Energy Storage Station. Aberdeen to become H2 Hub

Aberdeen is developing plans to become a global “hydrogen hub”.

Aberdeen could host a Scottish Gas Network (SGN) Hydrogen 100 pilot project – 300 new houses with hydrogen-powered heating.

As part of the 2019 Delivery Plan, the feasibility of scaling up production to supply energy to homes as well as transport is being explored by council officers.

The number of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles will increase again this year, with 17 Toyota Mirais and four Renault Kangoos being added to local authority fleets in the North East, and another road sweeper arriving in the city.

1. wow - yeah - I watched the whole video

I'm all for the diversion of our thirst for oil, but the amount of devices necessary for the safe delivery of hydrogen concern me . . .


ps: - yeah, I know, our record for "safe delivery" of petroleum is not exactly encouraging either . . . .
