The Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan for a green industrial revolution included ambitious new policies and investment in hydrogen transport projects including:

  • £20 million to support the development of cost-effective, zero emission heavy goods vehicles in the UK
  • £20 million to help develop clean maritime technology
  • £3 million in the recently announced Tees Valley Hydrogen Transport Hub

We will build on those announcements and set out the role for hydrogen in our forthcoming Transport Decarbonisation Plan, which will set out how we intend to reduce emissions and deliver transport’s contribution to net zero by 2050.
