Scottish Affairs Committee Visit H100 Carbon Capture Facility in Fife
The Scottish Affairs Committee visited the H100 project at the Fife Renewable Innovation Park on 16 May, as part of their new inquiry into carbon capture and hydrogen in Scotland.
During the visit, MPs visited the H100 Fife project and met with stakeholders on the role hydrogen can play in decarbonising heat in homes across the country.
The Committee also held a public evidence session near the site, which explored the H100 Fife project, the gas network, the UK Hydrogen Strategy and the British Energy Security Strategy, skills, and supply chain development.
Commenting, Pete Wishart, MP for Perth and North Perthshire and chair of the committee, said:
“It was fantastic to see first-hand how H100 is progressing. This is truly a cutting-edge project in the world’s efforts to reach net-zero, which will next year see hundreds of homes in Scotland become the first in the world to use 100% green hydrogen to heat their properties.
“What is absolutely clear is that hydrogen offers awesome potential to decarbonise homes, but will need major state and private investment to make it a reality across the UK.
“This is just the beginning of our inquiry into carbon capture and hydrogen in Scotland, and I suspect the case for green hydrogen will only be bolstered as the inquiry progresses.”
