The Greater Manchester Electrochemical Hydrogen Cluster

GMEHC aims to speed up the development and adoption of electrochemical hydrogen technology in businesses across Greater Manchester.

Real-life strategy to reach your goals.

Supporting Manchester’s ambitions to be net zero by 2038, GMEHC allows businesses to access the research, the expertise, and the facilities to develop and adopt clean, efficient electrochemical hydrogen technologies.

Hydrogen has the potential to become a leading source of energy — it can be used for heating, powering vehicles and industrial processes.

As it’s cleaner and more efficient than fossil fuels, it could have a major role to play in reaching Net Zero environmental targets.

Led by Manchester Metropolitans University and in partnership with the University of Manchester, the Royce Institute, and the National Physical Laboratory, this innovation accelerator programME is funded by Innovate UK.

There are two areas of the programme, research and development for larger businesses and capacity building for small to medium-sized businesses.
