Keadby Hydrogen Power Station is a proposed 900MW plant which could be operational from 2030 – bolstering security of supply and supporting the UK’s long-term decarbonisation by providing back-up low-carbon power to variable renewable generation.

Being developed by SSE Thermal and Equinor, it could be one of the world's first 100% hydrogen-fired power stations - producing zero emissions at the point of combustion.

Keadby Hydrogen would be designed to run on 100% hydrogen and would also have the capability to run on natural gas for an initial period if the necessary hydrogen infrastructure is not fully in place. It would then transition to running on low-carbon hydrogen as soon as practicable.

The project is due to enter scoping in 2024 ahead of a planning application being made.
