The Government recognises that hydrogen fuel cell technology has an important part to play in the transition towards a decarbonised transport network.

Based on current market developments, fuel cells fall outside the scope of the Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce, which will focus on the electricity system and the potential impact of plug-in electric vehicles on both the distribution and transmission systems. However, the Government will keep this point under review as the market develops over time.
