Zenith Energy and E1-H2 have announced their plans to jointly develop an energy facility that will produce 3.2GW of green hydrogen and ammonia. The plan is to locate the facility in Bantry Bay on Whiddy Island, Ireland where Zenith Energy already has a storage terminal in operation. Bantry Bay is also near several offshore wind farms, the electricity from which will be used to produce the green hydrogen and ammonia. Expected to be operational by 2028, the facility has the capacity to remove 2.4 million tonnes of carbon emissions from the Irish sky. This is equivalent to the carbon emissions generated by almost 25% of all homes in Ireland.
