January 28 (Renewables Now) - UK renewables installer and consultancy Dulas Ltd has been awarded funding by the Welsh government to look into the feasibility of setting up green hydrogen production in Wales, the firm said.
The funding for the project, which has been dubbed HyFEAS, was granted through the government’s Smart Living HyBRID SBRI programme, a competition aimed at facilitating the development of innovative and research solutions that support Wales’ hydrogen and climate objectives.
Through HyFEAS, Wales-based Dulas will work on examining the available technologies and assessing the technical and commercial feasibility of hydrogen production on home turf. The selected locations for this are water utility Welsh Water’s Llyn Celyn hydroelectric plant and a wind farm, Dulas said.
The HyFEAS project is expected to last four months. Dulas said that it hopes to use the results to progress to a full system design and planning stage.
“Research into green hydrogen production and defining affordable, sustainable systems that will work with renewable energy locally and at scale is ground-breaking stuff and we are excited to have started on this project,” said Andy Skipton Carter, commercial lead for consulting at Dulas.
“We’ll be building on our existing skills and learning new ones so that we can continue to offer our clients pioneering, effective renewable solutions that will help combat climate change and support local energy security,” added Carter.
