Testing, inspection and certification (TIC) company Kiwa UK has announced its involvement in the cross-industry group Hydrogen Strategy Now, that believes the Government must establish a UK-wide hydrogen strategy.
Just earlier this week, the group wrote to the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, urging him to open discussions for the strategy as part of post-coronavirus recovery.
In a letter to the Chancellor, the campaign group set out a commitment to unlocking investment, creating jobs and slashing emissions.
The group now has a combined employment of 100,00 people and a total value of £100bn in the UK and stands ready to invest up to £1.5bn in hydrogen projects and create thousands of jobs across the country.
“Hydrogen holds huge potential to achieve our decarbonisation targets and in so doing support the UK economy back from the current crisis,” said Mark Eldridge, Divisional Director at Kiwa UK.
“Kiwa UK and the wider group is already active in this area, and with further investment at a UK Government level the UK can lead the way to the benefit of both the ecnomy and climate change targets.”
