HYDROGEN POTENTIAL Uniper has its own plan to make its European power generation portfolio carbon-neutral by 2035, with hydrogen a cornerstone of its new strategy. The company has asked the Government to develop an enabling framework that is technology-neutral, and will provide incentives and support for companies competing at a global level. While it is in discussions with


companies that manufacture hydrogen engines as a “really interesting proposition” for Ratcliffe, Dave admitted it would be in competition with other sites. He added: “These things are


always commercial so there could be alternative sites they could go to with alternative attributes, but the key thing of trying to capture the imagination of the outside world and bring that sort of inward investment to the Midlands is essential – and it doesn’t matter whether it ends up at Ratcliffe or elsewhere in the Midlands. “There are other central hubs


we’ve been looking at but this is quite a difficult topic we’re looking at with no silver bullet answers. If there was some sort of technology X or Y, where would we place them? “If you look at large electrolysis plants, which are the primary


MIDLANDS ENGINE DELEGATION TO ATTEND COP26 IN GLASGOW


A Midlands Engine delegation will attend the COP26 climate change conference next year. Sir John Peace (pictured), who chairs the partnership, and D2N2


Local Enterprise Partnership chairwoman Elizabeth Fagan confirmed it would collectively highlight what the region has to offer at the Glasgow event, which will take place from 1 to 12 November 2021. It follows a Midlands Engine presence at MIPIM, the global property


conference held annually in Cannes, in recent years rather than cities and counties in the region competing with each other. Sir John Peace said: “The Midlands Engine is


a perfect platform to go to COP26 we are planning to do just that. But we need to have something to say – a collection of projects and ideas to lobby Number 10 for funding. “I personally love the idea of a


hydrogen community being created. We’re not doing this in isolation to the rest of the world. In Japan right now, Mitsubishi and Toyota are already collaborating with the Japanese government to create hydrogen cities and communities. We need to start pulling together now if we’re going to distinguish the Midlands, and indeed the UK, from the rest of the world.”


means already available for creating green hydrogen, they’re going to be sited along the coast next to wind farms, and that’s where the hydrogen is going to be produced. That isn’t necessarily what you’d land here.


“The one thing we’ve looked at is


energy from waste as being a central hub for power, steam, heat and other services that we can supply industry which might want to land itself here, making it more attractive.”
