Welcome to the HMGS website
The hydrogen mini-grid system is a taste of the future. Using renewable electricity from an onsite wind turbine the facility generates hydrogen which can be used to fuel your car or provide power to your home. As energy costs continue to rise hydrogen offers a cost effective and sustainable alternative to oil and gas

The Hydrogen Mini Grid System has been developed to provide electrical power to the Environmental Energy Technology Centre (EETC) and the Innovation Technology Centre (ITC).
The Hydrogen Mini Grid System (HMGS) is a unique development designed as a "proof-of-concept" installation to kick start the adoption of hydrogen as an sustainable alternative to hydrocarbon fuels. The HMGS is at present the largest wind-to-hydrogen installation in the UK and is the first to incorporate both the ability to dispense high pressure hydrogen for vehicle refueling as well as a fuel cell to generate electricity.
