Hydrogen Project

Wight Community Energy have been awarded funding to investigate the production and sale of hydrogen on the Island for use in transport and travel services that currently use fossil fuels. A similar project in Orkney has already successfully introduced hydrogen sourced from local renewable energy sources to power a commercial ferry route.

The Isle of Wight Hydrogen Project will investigate the practicality and economic feasibility of using energy from the community-owned Homestead solar array to generate hydrogen to be used in transport applications on the Isle of Wight.
