The publication of the UK’s first Hydrogen Strategy in August 2021 has further emphasised that hydrogen will be an essential part of the UK’s future energy independence, security, and our legally binding commitment to achieve net zero by 2050. In the British Energy Security Strategy, we doubled our ambition from 5 gigawatts (GW) to up to 10GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030, subject to affordability and value for money, with at least half of this coming from electrolytic hydrogen.

The UK has one of the most mature hydrogen markets globally. The approach of supporting multiple production technologies, including electrolytic and carbon capture-enabled hydrogen production has opened opportunities across the hydrogen economy in the UK, focusing on investment, supply chains, jobs and skills, and exports.
