The UK was the first major economy to embrace a legal obligation to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Hydrogen is part of UK’s Ten Point Plan for Green Industrial Revolution that sets the goals for wind energy, traffic (including a ban on selling petrol cars by 2035), as well as advances in nuclear power as a clean energy source. The government will allocate £12 bn for the implementation, and hopes that by 2030, the private sector could allocate three times more. The aim is to create 250,000 green jobs.

Regarding hydrogen, the UK Government aims – working with industry – to generate 5GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030 for industry, transport, power and homes, and is aiming to develop the first town heated entirely by hydrogen by the end of the decade.

Join us on 26 January 2022 at 11:00 (EET) to learn more about the current and future status of the UK hydrogen market.
