Hydrogen Strategy Could Put UK On The Map

THE UK is missing a golden opportunity to become a hydrogen super-power in transport, according to one of the country’s leading hydrogen trade association.
Celia Greaves, CEO of the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (UK HFCA), said the government’s net zero goals are at risk unless it adopts a national policy that embraces hydrogen fuel, infrastructure and vehicles.
“The UK HFCA recognises that a combined approach that considers both hydrogen and electrification is the way forward for the UK to reach its goals. However hydrogen policies that target fuels alone will not work, and any strategy must address infrastructure, vehicles, and the range of energy vectors that carry hydrogen, such as ammonia,” she said.
The call comes as the government published a new strategy for how the UK will produce more of its own energy. The delayed ‘Energy Security Strategy’ is designed to help tackle soaring energy prices and reduce reliance on Russian oil and gas.
She said hydrogen was vital in reaching net zero and that a clear strategy and more funding was needed in the transport sector to prevent the UK being left behind the rest of the world.
