Mission Statement


About us

Tower Group is a catalyst for green hydrogen development, creating a portfolio of renewable energy assets that solve industry and community challenges.

Based in the South West of England, we deliver full value chain services and develop renewable energy assets, including hydrogen hubs and bespoke hydrogen systems.

Why Hydrogen?

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. It has been a source of energy since the earliest stars ignited with hydrogen as their fuel.

Hydrogen is the sustainable energy solution for sectors that cannot be electrified and an essential element in the drive towards Net Zero.

Despite being a component of Town Gas which was used to heat homes in the UK until the 1960s hydrogen usage has until recently been limited to chemical feedstocks and other industrial processes.

The UK Government has now set a target of 10GW hydrogen production by 2030 for use in decarbonising heavy industry, road haulage, aviation and numerous other applications.


Hydrogen is incredibly versatile in its uses:

  • It can be stored indefinitely
  • It can be converted into electricity, making it applicable to vehicles powered by fuel cells but also grid balancing
  • It can be combusted as a fuel, either as pure hydrogen or blended
  • It can be used as a feedstock for chemical processes, such as in the production of fertilisers or e-fuels such as methanol

Due to its versatility hydrogen is an important partner for other renewable technologies especially when faced with constraint on the transmission networks. Tower Group’s hydrogen plants can accept curtailed energy, store it for later use or deploy it in other forms (i.e. as hydrogen gas or derivative fuels).

Tower Group work with private clients to identify use cases for hydrogen in existing or planned operations and deliver a bespoke hydrogen system; from power generation to hydrogen production, bunkering (storage), usage and distribution.

Our Projects


Tower Group is leading a consortium that aims to deliver the UK’s first green hydrogen maritime ecosystem around Appledore Docks in northern Devon.

The region has all the necessary components to build a thriving green hydrogen ecosystem. We expect this project to be a platform for the decarbonisation of existing vessels and the provision of hydrogen to service vessels for Celtic Sea Floating Offshore Wind farms.
