    Demand and supply side pledges

    8 Rivers Capital

    8 Rivers Capital pledges to develop and commercialise a novel ultra-low carbon hydrogen process technology capable of delivering clean, industrial scale hydrogen at a price that will enable the displacement of natural gas, and further drive the deployment of at least 435 ktpa (kilo tons per annum) of ultra-low carbon hydrogen by 2030.

    Acciona Energía

    At ACCIONA Energía we are committed to the creation of a robust renewable hydrogen ecosystem that helps meet decarbonization targets in an environment of economic growth. To this end, ACCIONA Energía recently teamed up to establish a joint venture with Plug Power, through which we target to achieve a 20% market share in the renewable hydrogen business in Spain and Portugal by 2030, through an initially planned investment of more than €2 billion.

    Anglo American

    We are currently in the process of engineering world-class green hydrogen technologies – including the world’s first 2000kW hydrogen fuel-cell powered ultra-class mine haul truck and producing green hydrogen at our mine sites.

    • We pledge to both produce and consume 100 kilo tonnes of green hydrogen per year by 2030.
    • We pledge to develop green hydrogen production systems at 7 of our open cut sites by 2030, with 3-8 hydrogen refuelling facilities at each, based on their haul truck fleet size.
    • We pledge that by 2030 we will convert all our diesel-powered ultra-class mine haul trucks at these sites to green hydrogen power, as well as to stimulate a wide range of hydrogen associated industries and opportunities within our host communities.


    By 2030 bp aims to participate in:

    • Production of at least 500ktpa new gross low and ultra-low carbon hydrogen in core markets, with up to 50% ultra-low carbon hydrogen from renewable sources. Some of this new production will be used in our European refineries as a substitute for the natural-gas based SMR-grey hydrogen currently used.
    • More than 50 hydrogen refuelling stations dispensing low carbon and renewable ultra-low carbon hydrogen, with an initial focus in Germany and the UK.


    To support CLP’s Climate Vision 2050, we are committed to provide a net-zero electricity supply to our customers by that date. As part of this commitment, we expect to transition our natural gas generation units to run on ‘low carbon hydrogen’ during the 2030s and 2040s. To do so, we will need not only Government support but the market to provide us with an average of around 550ktpa of ‘low carbon hydrogen’, delivered to our generation plants at a cost competitive to other alternatives which in today’s prices would equate to less than US$2 per kg. This pledge is therefore both a clear commitment to increase the use of hydrogen as a zero-carbon fuel in generation but also a challenge to potential producers to develop additional capacity at scale and commercially attractive prices, to help us underpin our world class electricity supply reliability over the long term.


    EDF pledges to produce 3 GW (corresponding to at least 250 ktpa) of low and ultra-low carbon hydrogen from electrolysis by 2030.  This corresponds to c. 3 mtpa of CO2 avoided, or about half of all international maritime transport to and from France.

    We commit to the completing our first portfolio of 3 hydrogen projects, with an estimated completion date of 2025. The first portfolio will reduce GHGs by eliminating an estimated 402k metric tonnes CO2e per year and will reduce the use of Diesel fuels by an approximate 19.5 million diesel gallon equivalents annually.

    Each of our projects will produce an estimated 12.2MT of SJ2719 fuel cell grade hydrogen daily, therefore 3 plants will produce an estimated 11ktpa of hydrogen. These figures would supply over 500 heavy-duty class 8 trucks on an annual basis, or an approximate 1,400 busses to support public transportation.
