The UK hydrogen strategy sets out the approach to developing a low carbon hydrogen sector in the UK to meet to ambition for 5GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030. The strategy outlines:
- how the UK will 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
It also sets out the twin-track approach to supporting both electrolytic "green" and carbon capture (CCUS)-enabled "blue" hydrogen production, alongside other potential production routes, which will enable the rapid growth of the sector while bringing down costs.
