ITM Power has been given government funding to commence feasibility studies for a 100MW power-to-gas storage project at Runcorn. Project Centurion aims to demonstrate an energy storage system that helps deliver decarbonisation across heat, transport and industry. It explores hydrogen production via electrolysis, transportation and salt cavern storage as well as gas grid injection at industrial scale. The aim is to prove hydrogen can deliver other cross-vector benefits, including security of supply and enabling increased amounts of renewable energy on the UK system. The Innovate UK funded feasibility study will explore the system design and costs and will assess the business case for deployment.
