Tackling climate change with technology

New facility will remove 63,000 tonnes of carbon emissions every year.

EI-H2 is Ireland’s first green hydrogen company and is taking leadership in the country’s climate change battle.

As we strive towards a net zero future in 2050 we’re planning to build not only Ireland’s first green hydrogen facility but one of the biggest in the world.

Through state-of-the-art technology our new 50MW electrolysis plant, set to open its doors in Aghada, County Cork, will offer a cost-efficient solution to the climate crisis whilst removing 63,000 tonnes of carbon emissions annually from the Irish industry and power generation.
