ESB and dCarbonX sign UK storage MOU

March 20, 2023

ESB and dCarbonX have signed a memorandum of understanding that will allow the companies to “evaluate and progress onshore large-scale subsurface hydrogen energy storage opportunities in the United Kingdom”.

As part of the agreement, ESB and dCarbonX will assess potential sites across the UK to support energy clusters, dedicated hydrogen networks and ESB’s energy projects.  

dCarbonX is an affiliate of Snam, an energy infrastructure operator and energy storage company.

ESB has significant UK onshore (1.5GW) and offshore (2GW) wind energy portfolios in development and planning stages and is exploring opportunities for the development of complementary onshore subsurface energy storage, with a particular focus on green hydrogen.
