Project to identify salt caverns suitable for storing hydrogen launched by the ETI

21 April 2016

Paul Winstanley Project Manager

The end goal of the project is to understand the challenges, opportunities and costs of creating and operating these stores. Storing and using hydrogen can be a low cost way of providing clean power for peak and load following demand. Large amounts of energy can be stored, with one cavern providing enough storage capacity to satisfy the peak demands of a single UK city. This project will provide more detail on the suitability of individual caverns and the costs associated with using them, increasing the evidence base needed if they are to be developed further.
