Motion text

That this House congratulates SGN on securing funding from the Scottish Government and Ofgem to deliver H100 – Fife, the first project of its kind in the world which will see customers being offered 100 per cent green hydrogen energy to heat their homes; notes that the project will initially benefit around 300 homes and in time will increase to provide energy to heat 1000 homes; further notes that the project has the potential to create over 200,000 green jobs and attract over £170 billion of private sector investment globally; recognises that H100 – Fife will provide critical evidence for hydrogen’s role in the pathway to net zero; notes that the project will lay the foundations for a large-scale rollout of hydrogen through the gas grid to help achieve net zero by 2045 in Scotland; and welcomes the decision for this project to be undertaken in Methil to continue to progress towards a more sustainable society by establishing the UK’s first hydrogen town by the end of the decade.
