Welsh renewable energy generator RWE is progressing plans to develop a green hydrogen production facility.

The plant would be developed on its land adjacent to Pembroke Power Station.

RWE's plans include a circa 110Mwe electrolysis green hydrogen production facility and a 1.5km pipeline running west to connect to nearby industry.

The site, once operational, will be capable of producing two metric tonnes of hydrogen every hour with oxygen as the only significant by-product from the plant.

Richard Little, Pembroke Net Zero Centre Director, said: "Green hydrogen generation is further technology coming forward at RWE’s Pembroke Power Station site, forming our vision for Pembroke Net Zero Centre. These technologies will each play a unique role in supporting Wales’ pathway to Net Zero.

"To secure the future of industry in South Wales, and safeguard local jobs, we need to provide clean energy alternatives, locally. Our proposals for Green hydrogen generation will do just that, helping to reduce CO2 emissions in local industrial activities by approximately 93,000 tonnes every year.

He added: "We strongly encourage the community to get involved in the consultation process, to learn more about our proposals for green hydrogen technology, our wider ambitions for Pembroke Net Zero Centre, and to have their say on the proposals."

The consultation on RWE’s plans launched on Monday (22 April) and will end on Monday 20 May 2024.

RWE is asking the community for its views on the proposals and has launched a consultation where local people can provide feedback on the planning application.
