Growth through green tech
We’re working to make CEME a powerful base from which green tech entrepreneurs and businesses can develop and launch their products. And we’re laying the groundwork for that by supporting one of the key green tech projects in our area.
The Thames Estuary Hydrogen Route Map outlines plans for an ambitious hydrogen energy ecosystem along the River Thames. The opportunities it identifies have the potential to attract multi-billion-pound investment and create thousands of jobs in the Thames Estuary regions, as well as to have significant impact on the UK’s targets for cleaner energy.
CEME aims to attract green tech businesses focused on product and service innovation that reduce carbon emissions to its campus, and to work with organisations like the Thames Estuary Growth Board to support the development of a hydrogen ecosystem.
CEME already has an on-campus hydrogen refuelling system and is now developing a ‘Living Lab’ that attracts research, investment and innovation and helps to extend the use of hydrogen as an energy source.
As a central hub for innovators, investors and end users, the Living Lab offers access to the equipment, environment and connections they need to explore the opportunities a hydrogen ecosystem offers.
The benefits aren’t just environmental – they’re economic too. As part of the Thames Estuary community, CEME aims to be a real contributor to its economic development.

There’s never been a better time for green tech businesses to make a base at CEME.
