Intelligent Energy partners with The Midlands Engine
Loughborough – 15th December 2021, Intelligent Energy are proud to be partnering with The Midlands Engine, providing Midlands solutions to global challenges. Midlands Engine Hydrogen Technologies Strategy provides the key for the UK to unlock the vast potential of hydrogen, in the nation’s journey to net zero. It has been an honour to be involved in the creation of this strategy and Intelligent Energy look forward to contributing to the achievement of the targets set out.
The Midlands is the manufacturing heartland of the UK, with unrivalled expertise and capacity to make and apply low carbon hydrogen technologies to deliver net zero. It is hydrogen technologies that have the power to connect hydrogen generators and end users – and it is the Midlands that has the power to make those technologies, for use in areas as diverse as transport, domestic heating and off grid power supplies.
Co-created by partners from right across the region, the Midlands Engine Hydrogen Technologies Strategy demonstrates the Midlands ability to deliver, by 2041:
- £10bn GVA to the Midlands and UK economy
- 29% CO2 reduction against current levels
- 167,000 new or safeguarded jobs
David Woolhouse, CEO, Intelligent Energy said: ‘Intelligent Energy has been the leading UK developer and a global supplier of hydrogen fuel cell technology since it started operations in 2001. Our supply chain is UK-centric and our planned new Gigawatt scale fuel cell production facilities will put the East Midlands at the forefront of zero emission fuel cell power product supply for the global hydrogen economy.’
