Hydrogen UK report establishes the pillars and fundamentals required to achieve hydrogen supply chain goals

Five strategic pillars have been laid out by Hydrogen UK in order to advance the UK’s hydrogen supply chain.

The Hydrogen UK Anchoring UK Hydrogen Supply Chains: setting out an industry vision report delivers on the recommendation from the Hydrogen Champion Report, and has found what is required to deliver hydrogen.

With the industry set to create 20,000 jobs, contributing £26m in cumulative GVA, realised across supply chains, production, storage, and network development, Hydrogen UK have established five pillars:

  • Targeted, end-to-end funding support scaling UK capabilities in emerging technology and manufacturing across the hydrogen value chain.
  • Incentivising partnerships that simulate industry, government, and private finance investments into large production, networks, storage, infrastructure, and off-taker projects.
  • Accelerate targeted public sector finance into UK supply chain companies, supporting them to secure the financing options needed to scale.
  • A more strategic approach between government and industry to attract overseas supply chain companies into the UK.
  • Simulate the domestic hydrogen market and supply chain by balancing the role of non-price factors and competitive allocations, building on knowledge from the wind sector.

To meet these targets, Hydrogen UK has revealed the fundamentals that need to be in place. These include harmonised standards, regulations and accelerate testing of hydrogen technologies; monitoring and evaluation framework to track the success of supply chain growth; and accelerating the development of a trained workforce to deliver the projects and wider supply chain.
