Announced by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the Sustainable Markets Initiative (SMI) at COP26 today, ERM is one of 28 companies who have pledged to drive growth in the demand for, and supply of, hydrogen.

This new initiative, known as H2Zero, will help accelerate the use and production of hydrogen as an essential part of the future net-zero energy system.

ERM has pledged that by 2030, we as a company intend to enable the production of 500 MW of ultra-low carbon hydrogen through ERM Dolphyn and other projects, reaching a minimum of 4 GW by 2035. ERM’s Dolphyn (Deepwater Offshore Local Production of HYdrogeN) project, a first of its kind, is an innovative integrated system combining all of the technologies required to bring the latest floating wind and hydrogen production technologies together. Through ERM Dolphyn, we intend to enable the GW-scale production of ultra-low-carbon hydrogen by 2035, while also continuing to help companies implement hydrogen-based solutions.

ERM CEO Keryn James moderated the panel 'The Roadmap to Net-zero with Hydrogen’ which launched the pledge at COP26: “As the size of the low carbon Hydrogen market grows significantly through to 2030, ERM will be materially involved in this market supporting leading companies in moving towards low carbon hydrogen solutions and through thought leadership and active collaboration in developing methodologies, safety standards and insights.”
