The Government has a UK-wide mechanism for allocating revenue support to new low carbon hydrogen projects, including for electrolytic ‘green’ hydrogen projects. The first Hydrogen Allocation Round (HAR) for the Hydrogen Production Business Model resulted in 125MW of production capacity across 11 projects in England, Scotland and Wales, including two in Scotland.

HAR 2 is now open to applications, through which Government hopes to provide support for up to 875MW of low carbon hydrogen production. This round closes on 19 April 2024. Government has set out the process for future allocation rounds through its Hydrogen Production Delivery Roadmap.
