Hydrogen GMaP completed projects
2021 Hydrogen GMaP
The role of Guarantees of Origin in driving a future UK hydrogen market
This first-of-a-kind project explored the role a hydrogen Guarantee of Origin (GoO) scheme could play in the development of a UK hydrogen market.
In this project we evaluated existing GoO schemes in the UK and the EU, explored the benefits a hydrogen GoO scheme could generate for market participants including hydrogen producers, transporters and consumers, and also set out six key recommendations for industry to consider in order to implement a UK hydrogen GoO scheme.
2020 Hydrogen GMaP
We developed four hydrogen scenarios to explore the potential role of various hydrogen production and storage technologies, hydrogen transportation options and user conversion routes to full (100%) hydrogen. The scenarios were based on completed or ongoing hydrogen projects in Great Britain.
The purpose of generating the Hydrogen GMaP scenarios was to explore the hydrogen events or triggers that could lead to market change. For market participants this served to indicate potential future market change, based on specific triggers that could come to fruition.
Market considerations to support a hydrogen town
Based on Government ambition set out in the Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan to potentially support industry to develop a plan for a hydrogen town before the end of the decade (an ambition based on successful evidence from hydrogen trials), this Hydrogen GMaP project set out to explore the potential market arrangements required to enable a hydrogen town.
The purpose of this project was to explore impact of a full (100%) hydrogen town to existing gas sector market design and commercial arrangements.
