Government sets out new low-carbon hydrogen strategy

The UK government has announced a new Hydrogen Strategy as part of its efforts to reduce the country’s carbon emissions and reliance on fossil fuels.

Hydrogen is a new low carbon solution which can help the UK to achieve net zero by 2050, and the Sixth Carbon Budget target by 2035.

As set out in the 10 point plan for a green industrial revolution, government, working with industry, is aiming for 5GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030 for use across the economy. This level of hydrogen production could be equivalent to the amount of gas consumed by over 3 million households in the UK each year.

The UK’s first Hydrogen Strategy outlines:

  • How the UK will rapidly and significantly scale up production and lay the foundations for a low carbon hydrogen economy by 2030
  • How government will support innovation and stimulate investment in the 2020s to scale up low carbon hydrogen

The Strategy details how we will look to capture the economic benefits of growing the UK hydrogen economy, supporting innovation and stimulating investment to develop the supply chains and skills needed and create jobs and export opportunities for the UK.
