Shows process of renewable green hydrogen to major industry partners in the North West and North Wales

Supplying renewable hydrogen for
cleaner manufacturing

Grenian will supply renewable green hydrogen to major industry partners in the North West and North Wales. We will harness renewable sources of electricity and convert this into a fuel that directly replaces natural gas in the production of everyday goods and materials; such as food, paper, glass and cars.

Our hydrogen will be largely produced using electricity from our own new and existing wind and solar farms, helping us to deliver more renewable projects across the UK and ensuring we can maximize green energy use.

Our first project, Cheshire Green Hydrogen has been shortlisted by UK Government for a long-term support contract.

This will enable us to produce and sell green hydrogen to industry for at least 15 years at a similar price to natural gas, but with zero resulting emissions of carbon dioxide.

Across our portfolio, we have a further five projects in the detailed engineering and consenting phase, and several more under development, which we intend to build over the coming years.

Our goal is to help reduce the climate impacts of industrial energy use, while sustaining and creating jobs, boosting economic growth and transforming manufacturing in the UK.

The benefits of
our approach

Circle Icon

It’s renewable & secure

We make hydrogen using solar and wind power, which is limitless, results in very little or zero emissions of carbon dioxide and is entirely home grown

Chain Link Icon

It’s seamless

Switching to green hydrogen requires very little investment by manufacturers, many of whom have already shown that they can use hydrogen in place of natural gas.

Padlock Icon

It’s tried & tested

Government-supported fuel switching demonstrations have proved that hydrogen can be used with no additional impact on the health or safety of local populations.

Pipe Icon

It’s discreet

Our electrolysers sit within regular shipping containers and are lower in height than a two story building.

About Grenian

Grenian is a joint venture company owned equally by Progressive Energy, lead developer and HyNet founding partner; Statkraft, Europe’s largest generator of renewable electricity; and sustainability-led alternative assets investment manager, Foresight.

The company brings together a diverse set of skills and expertise, and has been formed to make a meaningful contribution to decarbonising industry by producing green hydrogen for use as a fuel in manufacturing instead of natural gas.

Our flagship Cheshire Green Hydrogen project is located near the banks of the Mersey and Manchester Ship Canal.

It will supply local industry and also connect into the forthcoming HyNet hydrogen pipeline network, which could enable future scale-up of production.

Our wider portfolio includes projects at advanced stages of development across the North West and North Wales, with proposals at Wrexham, St Helens in Liverpool, Stretford in Manchester, and two further projects in Cheshire.

We have a range of other projects at earlier stages of development and intend to build these out over the coming years, support by the Government’s strategic commitment to low carbon hydrogen as a key part of the UK’s transition to net zero.
