Scottish Hydrogen Hub Gets Green Light

Energy firm GreenPower has had its planning application approved for a hydrogen production and distribution centre on the west coast of Scotland.

The site, at the Glenshellach industrial estate in Oban, Argyll and Bute, will supply hydrogen produced by electrolysis of water and powered by renewable energy.

GreenPower said the Argyll Hydrogen Hub had the potential to enable the transition away from fossil-fuels to zero-carbon fuels for HGVs, buses, trains, ferries, industrial processes and heating.

It added it was also actively considering the potential for hydrogen production at its other energy generation sites, including at the Barachander Wind Farm, the sister project to Carraig Gheal.
