December 19 (Renewables Now) - UK distributed waste-to-hydrogen firm Powerhouse Energy Group Plc (LON:PHE) on Monday said it has agreed a heads of terms for a 25-year lease for its first commercial distributed modular gasification (DMG) system.
The agreement is with Peel Environmental Ltd and the site is located close to the University of Chester, Thornton Science Park, where Powerhouse's G3-UHt research demonstrator is operating.
"This location allows us to deliver electricity, road-fuel quality hydrogen, and industrial syngas to clients from multiple sectors," said Powerhouse chief executive Keith Allaun. The CEO explained that the potential for expansion on the site will allow the company to ultimately target the production of more than 2 MW of electricity and more than 3 tonnes of hydrogen a day.
Powerhouse will now start the planning and permitting process. The signing of the lease is contingent upon securing the required approvals.
