The aim of the Net Zero Hydrogen Fund (NZHF) is to provide capital expenditure (CAPEX) and development expenditure (DEVEX). This will support the commercial deployment of new low carbon hydrogen production projects during the 2020s.

This is to ensure the UK has a diverse and secure decarbonised energy system fit for meeting our ambition of 10GW low carbon hydrogen production by 2030, and commitment to reach net zero by 2050.

  • equipment pricing (bid lists, bid packages)
  • plant layout & model (plot plan)
  • material quantification (material take-off, physical drawings)
  • engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) execution planning (EPC schedule, contract plan)
  • cost estimation (capital costs, operating costs)
  • commercial proposal (cost, schedule, performance guarantees)
  • environmental impacts and mitigation

Post-FEED and pre-final investment decision (pre-FID) studies can include:

  • refinement of the outputs of FEED, particularly the cost estimates
  • planning applications

These lists are not exhaustive
