Hydrogen BECCS Innovation Programme

Last updated: 9 May 2023

The Hydrogen BECCS Innovation Programme supports technologies which can produce hydrogen from biogenic feedstocks and be combined with carbon capture. It forms part of the GBP 1 billion Net Zero Innovation Portfolio, which aims to accelerate the commercialisation of innovative clean energy technologies and processes through the 2020s and 2030s. 

The programme is in 2 phases: Phase 1 (GBP 5 million) supports multiple projects to scope and develop a feasible prototype demonstration project. In August 2022, 22 projects were selected under Phase 1. Phase 2 (GBP 25 million) takes projects from innovation design through to innovation demonstration.
