We’re excited to announce our participation in RenewableUK’s Green Hydrogen 2024 event, happening on Thursday 18th April in Liverpool.

This event is a gathering for industry leaders, policymakers, innovators, and stakeholders to discuss the future of energy, especially focusing on green hydrogen.

Listen to Apollo's Andrew Glass

Our Regional Director, Andrew Glass will share his insights on navigating the complexities of the planning system to facilitate the delivery of green hydrogen projects:

➡️ Green hydrogen and the planning system: Getting deliverable consents
📅 Thursday 18th April
⏲️ 1130am-1230pm

This session will look into crucial points, including:

  • The implications of the current planning system on Hydrogen Allocation Round 2 (HAR2) projects
  • Identifying the challenges within the planning system
  • Strategies to integrate hydrogen into the UK permitting system seamlessly
  • Dispelling common myths surrounding green hydrogen development.

Andrew will be joined by panelists Chris Streatfeild, Director of Renewable Safety, and Matt Fox, Senior Associate of Pinsent Masons, for an engaging discussion on these issues.

Apollo's Expertise

Apollo has been at the forefront of the energy transition advising a variety of clients from technology developers, regional governments, through to project developers and large utility companies.

Through this work we have built an impressive track record.

We have a team of experienced consultants and engineers with a deep understanding of cutting-edge technology and the new energies market.

Energy hub development
Apollo have been working with Veri Energy to assess the feasibility of constructing a hydrogen energy hub at the Sullom Voe Terminal (SVT) on Shetland. Through the use of green electrons from onshore and offshore wind, Apollo has assessed the feasibility to utilise the estate SVT for the generation of hydrogen and associate hydrogen derivatives at 300MW scale. The study assessed the plant requirement for hydrogen, methanol, ammonia and e-diesel/e-SAF production along with storage opportunities along with market assessment and associated route for the hydrogen and its derivatives. Apollo also assessed the opportunity to export green hydrogen from SVT in the form of LOHC.

Port decarbonisation
The Port of Milford Haven is exploring its potential as part of the FLOW market in the Celtic Sea. As part of this the port commissioned a study (funded by SBRI) looking at the potential for renewable energy generation on the port estate linked to hydrogen production. The study estimated the market demand through vessel size and type and linked this back to hydrogen demand along with alternative e-fuel derivatives. The study linked well with various works Apollo has conducted for the offshore assets and fleet for oil and gas in the North Sea.

Apollo have been contracted to provide the conceptual work to engineer and install a LTS feeder line from the Port of Milford Haven to the Swansea/Bridge End region of Wales. Installation of such a pipeline provides the potential to decarbonise a significant percentage of the South Wales Industrial Cluster. In addition the line will have the potential to provide hydrogen at a domestic level. The line will also allow future expansion of the South Wales coastline through to Bristol providing potentially earlier regional access to hydrogen at scale than would otherwise be possible.
