The cost of new onshore wind has fallen dramatically over the last few years. It is now one of the lowest cost options for new power and is now cheaper than new gas and nuclear power.
Wind turbines harness the energy of moving air to rotate the blades and generate electricity. Onshore wind refers to the turbines found on land, while offshore turbines tend to be located far out at sea.
Hydrogen is a very abundant element, which can be produced in an electrolyser using renewable electricity.
This converts water into hydrogen and oxygen using the electricity, and the hydrogen gas can then be compressed stored in high pressure cylinders.
