The oil and gas company BP has been announced as Aberdeen’s corporate partner for its hydrogen goals. Hundreds of jobs might be produced in the next ten years if the city becomes a significant hydrogen hub, according to predictions. The collaboration with BP has now been accepted by Aberdeen Municipal Council’s city growth and resources committee. Granite City already has a fleet of hydrogen-powered double-decker buses. BP insists on investing in renewables despite its huge engagement in the fossil fuel business and environmentalist criticism. Greenpeace’s challenge to the UK government’s permission for a North Sea oil development was dismissed in October. BP gained approval to drill off the coast of Aberdeen at the Vorlich area in 2018. The plan says that the Aberdeen Hydrogen Hub will contain a solar power facility as well as a green hydrogen production and refueling facility. Green hydrogen is produced using renewable energy sources rather than technologies that release greenhouse gases.
