Hydrogen gains lift-off

Hydrogen UK (HUK), the trade association for the hydrogen industry in the UK, has launched ‘Hydrogen Accelerators’ at the Conservative Party Conference, providing a blueprint for the continued development of Britain’s entire hydrogen value chain.

The Hydrogen Accelerators are a set of recommendations from the 50 strong industry members directed at Government to ensure successful deployment of hydrogen in the UK.

HUK has recently added 13 new partners to its membership, meaning that the organisation has doubled in size since its launch in December 2021.

Commenting on the aim of the Hydrogen Accelerators, HUK CEO Clare Jackson said: “If we truly want Britain to secure a slice of this $2.5tr global hydrogen pie, we need to get our skates on because we are competing with other countries for investment. Hydrogen UK’s Accelerators provide detailed steps that industry and Government must take together to fast-track hydrogen’s progress in the UK, to secure our place as a global leader, create new jobs and economic prosperity and ensure that we deliver net-zero cost-effectively.”

The call for urgent action comes as the European Commission announces a €3bn hydrogen bank for projects and the US passes the Inflation Reduction Act, creating an attractive proposition for international hydrogen companies.

Born from the Hydrogen Taskforce, HUK’s mission is to ensure that Government and industry work together to deliver a hydrogen economy and achieve net-zero.
