As a clean energy carrier, hydrogen can play a major role in the transition to a low carbon economy. As a transport fuel, hydrogen can drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve local air quality. With the capability of acting as a long duration energy store, hydrogen can also be used to overcome the intermittency of renewables. In addition, hydrogen displacement of natural gas can provide a realistic mechanism for the decarbonisation of heat. More than this, there is growing international evidence that these capabilities can be realised commercially in the near term as a new market for hydrogen energy emerges -  rather than being a remote future prospect.

CymruH2Wales Project

This website describes the ongoing CymruH2Wales project and the broader hydrogen and fuel cell R&D activities of the University of South Wales. CymruH2Wales R&D aims to ensure that Wales can play an active role in establishing new hydrogen technology products, processes and services. It is hoped that this activity will allow Wales to gain an early advantage in the adoption of hydrogen as part of a low carbon energy future for transport, electricity and heat.

The current phase of CymruH2Wales is as part of the £24 million research operation FLEXIS (Flexible Integrated Energy Systems), designed to further develop the energy systems research capability in Wales, building on the world class capability that already exists in Welsh Universities.

FLEXIS is led by Cardiff University, Swansea University and the University of South Wales, and has received £15 million in funding support from the Europen Regional Development Fund through the Welsh European Funding Office


This web site has been established to provide information on the transition to a hydrogen based low-carbon energy future, in general and hydrogen activities in Wales in particular. The site was originally set up as part of the Objective 1 part-funded project “A Sustainable Energy Supply for Wales : Towards the Hydrogen Economy”. It continues to inform on all activities geared towards the transition to a hydrogen economy in Wales.
