TPPL launches hydrogen infrastructure procurement system

Hydrogen fuel pump

The Highland Council and The Procurement Partnership Ltd (TPPL) has launched a new procurement system to help councils across the UK establish hydrogen fuel infrastructure.

The Infrastructure Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is available to all councils and the wider public sector across the UK.

The DPS is scoped to include electric vehicle charging infrastructure and the recycling/repurposing of electric vehicle batteries.

Furthermore, it is set to support vehicles and residential properties, including hydrogen supplied into a closed/private network grid.

James Brennan, TPPL director, said: “This new national hydrogen procurement solution forms part of TPPL’s wider focus on helping public sector bodies increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their air handling processes, enabling them to make sustainable improvements in their environmental impact.”

Cllr Trish Robertson, chair of the council’s economy & infrastructure and the Climate Change Working Group, said interest in hydrogen is increasing day by day.

She said: “The potential offers to decarbonise many public sector operations is huge.”

There are 25 key suppliers that have been appointed to the DPS from the hydrogen infrastructure and supply sector. Additional suppliers will be able to participate over the next five years.
