DBT Hydrogen & CCUS
mission to the UK

Low carbon hydrogen has a pivotal role to play in achieving UK’s net zero and energy security goals. The UK has ambitious, robust plans for increasing its development and this will bring significant growth opportunities for businesses.  

The UK’s extensive renewable generation capabilities, geography, infrastructure, expertise and government innovation funding programme including the £960m Green Industries Growth Accelerator (GIGA), make the UK well suited to develop rapidly a low carbon hydrogen economy.

The UK has doubled its ambition to up to 10GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030, with at least half of this coming from electrolytic hydrogen, drawing on the scale up of UK offshore wind, other renewables and new nuclear.

Government analysis suggests that by 2030 the sector could support over 12,000 jobs and unlock up to £11 billion private investment. (Source: UK Hydrogen Net Zero Investment Roadmap; Hyvolution UK brochure
