Recent announcements from the UK Government have made it clear that the role for low-carbon hydrogen in the UK energy system is set to increase rapidly across the next decade. There was significant focus on low-carbon hydrogen in the Energy Security Strategy, including the doubling of the hydrogen capacity target to 10GW. Hence, there is great momentum at present in the UK for this technology, and it is critical now that we identify and consider key obstacles and timeframes as the market develops.
Our roundtable on low-carbon hydrogen, held on the 5 May 2022, sought to explore such issues. The event was hosted by Cornwall Insight and Heidrick & Struggles and chaired by Laura Sandys CBE. It brought together key market participants in the UK hydrogen economy to discuss common issues and the pathways required to deliver low-carbon hydrogen.
