Zero Carbon Humber responds to the Government’s Hydrogen Strategy

A step forward in kick-starting a hydrogen economy in the Humber

“The publication of the Government’s Hydrogen Strategy is a welcome step forward in kick-starting a hydrogen economy in the Humber. Over the coming years, the combination of hydrogen, carbon capture and negative emissions technologies will play a pivotal role in decarbonising critical sectors of our economy including power, heating, transport and heavy industry. The Zero Carbon Humber partnership, as part of the East Coast Cluster, brings together the companies that can make this a reality, incorporating hydrogen production facilities, hydrogen-fuelled power stations, hydrogen storage and common hydrogen infrastructure linking them together. These projects combined have the potential to meet over a third of the Government’s 5GW hydrogen capacity target. Developing this world-leading infrastructure in the Humber would build the capacity of the UK-wide supply chain, support thousands of jobs and help level up the region.”
