EDF Renewables UK and Hynamics announce investment in green hydrogen at Teesside

March 22, 2022 |

In the UK, EDF Renewables UK and Hynamics, a subsidiary of EDF Group specializing in hydrogen, are announcing plans to invest significantly in their Teesside operation, supporting local and national government aspirations to regenerate Tees Valley by investing in decarbonization.

EDF is the latest business to commit investment to Tees Valley, announcing plans for a green hydrogen production center in the vicinity of the former Redcar steelworks. 

Tees Green Hydrogen, will be a pioneering project, using the green electricity from nearby Teesside Offshore Wind Farm along with a new solar farm, which EDF Renewables UK intends to construct near Redcar, to power its hydrogen electrolyzer. The project will supply local business customers with hydrogen to support decarbonization efforts and a significant reduction in industrial pollution.

The development is the latest in a growing list of green initiatives proposed on Teesside. In its initial phase, the electrolyzer will be 30-50MW in size, but is designed to be able to scale to over 500MW, in line with emerging demand.
