Hydrogen is the new Holy Grail. The UK Government’s Energy White Paper gives it 175 references, three times the number for offshore wind and 10 times more than new nuclear.
Hydrogen Policy Statement
The world’s eyes will be on Scotland in November when global leaders are set to meet in Glasgow for the COP26 summit, a year later than originally planned.
Holyrood has pledged to give the hydrogen sector £100 million over the next five years in order to support a green recovery and a just transition to net zero.
Scotland’s green hydrogen capabilities could “significantly contribute” towards domestic and international net zero targets through the decarbonisation of heavy industry.
