About the Hydrogen Theme

ETP is a partnership of 14 Scottish universities delivering world-class capability and resources in energy research, development, and demonstration. Its unparalleled energy capability and core research strengths across a broad range of energy technologies can provide the spark you need to bring your ideas closer to market. 

On the road to net-zero, traditional renewable energy generation (wind & solar) has formed the centrepiece of Scotland’s decarbonisation strategy through electrification. However, there are parts of the economy and energy sector that are difficult to decarbonise. As such, Hydrogen could be a key component of the energy jigsaw and help to decarbonise key sectors including transport (notably heavy-duty vehicles, aviation & shipping), industrial high temperature heat and potentially in energy storage solutions.

ETP’s 14 member universities have significant expertise and facilities in a number of areas in the low carbon hydrogen sector including hydrogen production, fuel cell development, system integration and materials development.

The Hydrogen Innovation Programme

To further develop Scotland’s hydrogen future, ETP’s Hydrogen Innovation Programme is designed to accelerate industry innovation in the low carbon hydrogen sector, by bringing together Scotland’s academic researchers and industry to build effective collaborations and develop more impactful Research & Development (R&D) projects. 

Scottish based businesses developing early stage prototypes, products or services in the low carbon hydrogen sector can apply for support from the Hydrogen Innovation Programme. 

Innovation funding

We offer businesses based in Scotland access to resources including project funding to work with Scottish universities on research and innovation projects.
