We’re proud to offer up to 100% hydrogen CHP in partnership with 2G, helping you to get ready for a low carbon future.
Do you have a hydrogen CHP project in mind?
Are you a large organisation that consumes over 500,000 kWh of electricity and is planning to invest in hydrogen CHP in the next 12 months?
As one of the UK’s leading Combined Heat and Power suppliers and operators, we can help you to transform your business with hydrogen ready CHP. Tell us about your project by completing our simple form to get the conversation started.
We’re proud to be supporting the UK and Ireland’s transition to a hydrogen-powered future. With several partners, we’re working on a range of hydrogen ready assets and projects.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We’re transforming our decommissioned power plant at Redditch, Worcestershire, into a site capable of burning a blend of natural gas and hydrogen. The plant will only run when there’s high demand for electricity or low renewable generation, and will be capable of powering 2,000 homes.

What is hydrogen CHP?
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.
What does H2-CHP stand for?
H2-CHP stands for Hydrogen CHP, a low-carbon method of supplying heat and power to your business simultaneously.
What are the different types of Hydrogen CHP?
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).
How will green hydrogen be used in the CHP plant?
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.
