Hydrogen Production and End Use
Progressive has developed significant expertise in hydrogen during the last decade. We are currently working on several hydrogen-related projects funded by the gas distribution networks. These require deep understanding of the full chain of hydrogen production, transport and end-use, along with the the full chain of carbon capture and storage (CCS). Further information on these hydrogen-related projects can be found on our Projects page.
Progressive is currently working to develop and deploy a range of battery storage projects. These include those co-located with intermittent renewables and those 'behind the meter' in industry. This has involved close engagement with BEIS, Ofgem and National Grid to validate assumptions relating to the plethora of regulatory drivers and constraints. Progressive has also recently worked closely with several novel technologies, seeking to improve and reduce the costs associated with, for example, both compressed air and liquid energy storage.
Renewable Heat and Electricity
Progressive has been active in the renewables and waste sector for over 15 years. The team is experienced in conventional combustion and advanced conversion technologies (gasification, pyrolysis and anaerobic digestion). It has also built a capability in the production of alternative energy vectors, such as hydrogen, biosubstitute natural gas (bioSNG) and liquid biofuels (including second generation) as well as projects which utilise renewable and recovered heat.
Carbon Capture and Storage
Progressive has developed several CCS projects, including the Teesside Low Carbon Project, which reached the final four of DECC's CCS Commercialisation Competition. For this, Progressive built and managed a consortium of multinational companies BOC-Linde, GdF Suez and Premier Oil. Linked to our ongoing work in decarbonisation of the gas networks with hydrogen, Progressive continues to be active in seeking to deploy CCS projects.
