Our partnership with HiiROC

Centrica has taken a minority stake in HiiROC, who produce low-cost, zero emission “emerald” hydrogen from biomethane, flare gas or natural gas. This process uses just one-fifth of the energy needed by water electrolysis.

Injecting hydrogen at Brigg

With HiiROC, we’re piloting a project to inject “emerald” hydrogen into our gas peaking plant at Brigg, Lincolnshire. This will be the first time hydrogen is used within a grid-connected gas fired power plant in the UK.

Our partnership with Equinor
Transforming our infrastructure at Rough and Easington Terminal

We’ve signed a co-operation agreement with Equinor to explore the development of a low-carbon hydrogen production hub at Easington, East Yorkshire. We’re also making progress on our plans to convert our Rough natural gas storage reservoir into a hydrogen storage facility.

Creating a hydrogen pathway with Ryze

We’re working with Ryze to build and operate hydrogen production facilities, with the aim of supplying hydrogen for industry and transportation. We’re also exploring the development of a hydrogen refuelling facility to fully decarbonise our fleet of British Gas vehicles.

Hydrogen-ready peaker in Redditch
Blending fuels at Redditch

We have constructed a new hydrogen-blend-ready gas-fired peaking plant in Redditch, Worcestershire. It's designed to support times of high or peak demand for electricity, and can power the equivalent of 2,000 homes for a full day, helping to maintain stability and reliability on the grid. The plant is capable of using a blend of natural gas and hydrogen, futureproofing the site and supporting the UK’s transition towards a decarbonised energy system.

Hydrogen CHP frequently asked questions

Hydrogen CHP is a type of Combined Heat and Power system, which runs on up to 100% hydrogen fuel. This provides heat and power onsite simultaneously, with waste heat from the power generation process recovered and utilised onsite.

H2-CHP stands for Hydrogen CHP, a low-carbon method of supplying heat and power to your business simultaneously.

There are two main types of hydrogen CHP. Dual-channel CHP uses a blend of two fuels, such as hydrogen and natural gas. Pure hydrogen CHP uses only hydrogen as a fuel. CHP can be run from a range of “colours” of hydrogen, such as green hydrogen (made using renewable electricity).

Green hydrogen can be used as a fuel in hydrogen CHP to power electricity and heat generation. This type of hydrogen is created by utilising renewable electricity for electrolysis, which splits water into hydrogen and oxygen.
