Analysis of the transport vectors available for hydrogen and the technical, economic and regulatory factors which influence them

Lead Research Organisation: University of Edinburgh
Department Name: Sch of Engineering


This research proposes to look at each of these hydrogen transport vectors in depth and construct software which will
allow developers to input their particular parameters and determine the optimal route for their hydrogen product
to reach it's destination(s).
This will look at the technological and economic factors determining the best transport vector for green hydrogen,
produced from offshore renewables. This will consider transport from the likely production sites such as areas of
good offshore wind resource to predicted demand sites such as nearby industry and ports. This will consider the
reuse of existing oil and gas infrastructure, such as pipelines, as well as the construction of purpose built pipelines,
and the transport of green hydrogen in tube trailers, via rail and as liquid hydrogen or as part of a chemical carrier
such as ammonia.
