To ask the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, how many submissions to the second hydrogen allocation round her Department received by 19 April 2024; what the total production capacity of the projects in those submissions is; and if she will provide a breakdown of the locations of those projects by region.

Hydrogen Allocation Round 2 aims to award contracts of up to 875MW, subject to affordability and value for money, to help deliver our ambition of up to 1GW of electrolytic hydrogen production projects being in operation or in construction by 2025. The application window closed on 19 April with a significant increase in interest since Hydrogen Allocation Round 1, both in number and total capacity of projects. We intend to announce the number of applications and total production capacity following initial eligibility checks. In Autumn, we then plan to announce the number, location and total capacity of projects shortlisted for the due diligence and negotiations stage.
