ITM Power PLC (LON:ITM) has announced the completion of a techno-economic feasibility study for the large-scale centralised production of renewable hydrogen in British Columbia (BC).

The energy storage and clean fuel company, which led the study, said it had analysed the potential of over 10 locations in the Canadian province for the installation and operation of an up to 300MW (megawatt) electrolysis plant that would convert renewable energy into hydrogen.

ITM Power said the study had highlighted a number of “attractive opportunities” for BC to leverage its renewable electricity capacity to become a world leader in the production and export of renewable electrolytic hydrogen.

The study, which was funded by the BC government, was based on ITM Power’s polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) technology as well as a SPERA Hydrogen, a liquid organic hydrogen carrier developed by Japanese engineering firm Chiyoda.

ITM Power said that the results of the study would be used to consider the installation of a facility in BC which would have the potential to be the world’s largest hydrogen production facility.

Steve Jones, managing director of ITM Power, said the results of the study highlighted BC as “one of the world's best locations for the generation and export of large-scale renewable hydrogen”.

In afternoon trading on Tuesday, ITM Power’s shares were 6.2% higher at 37.10p.
