Green Hydrogen

Whilst hydrogen itself is emissions-free, it needs a lot of energy to make it.

That’s why Hive Hydrogen is investing in dedicated renewable generation and energy storage systems to produce 100% green hydrogen and ammonia.

We are adopting a sector-focused strategy to scale up green hydrogen/ammonia production globally to decarbonise those hard-to-abate and energy-intensive industries, transport, and energy sectors.

Since Hive was established in 2010, we have invested in innovative solutions to help save the planet. We have become specialists in solar energy. And we are now on a mission to develop a fully sustainable energy source and storage solution in the form of green hydrogen.

Our hydrogen mission will support the wider system integration and meet the needs of smart energy transformation with the development of large-scale green hydrogen and green ammonia hubs across the globe.

Our hub-based model currently includes three core projects – Coega (South Africa), Albamed (Spain), and Gente Grande (Chile). All three projects are managed by local teams based in the regions, with oversight from our Head of Hydrogen & Hybrid Energy, Shirvine Zhang.

Hive Energy - Hive Hydrogen - Green Hydrogen
Across the globe, green energy is driving the net-zero movement.

Renewable energy is favourable because it provides the cleanest and lowest-cost power source. As fossil fuels are phased out, green hydrogen will become the world’s go-to green fuel. 

Green ammonia is produced from the sea or freshwater and uses electrolysis (powered by renewable energy). Production of a large volume of green hydrogen, in combination with green hydrogen storage, will provide long term seasonal flexibility and bring stability and certainty to the global fuel supply system.

In contrast, brown ammonia production accounts for almost 1.5% of the world’s CO2 emissions. Production of green ammonia underpins the case for green hydrogen production to enable a sustainable supply.

Hive’s projects will produce a consistent supply of green hydrogen and green ammonia for export across Europe and the Middle East to support the decarbonisation of hard-to-abate sectors.
