To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment his Department has made of how much of the Government’s hydrogen production targets of (a) 1GW by 2025 and (b) 5GW by 2030 will be met by green hydrogen.
26 April 2021
My Rt. Hon. Friend the Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan confirmed our aim, working with industry, for 5GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030 for use across the economy. As we progress towards this ambition, we would hope to see around 1GW of hydrogen production capacity by 2025.
The levels of green and blue hydrogen production that make up the 5GW will depend on market developments in the 2020s.
Further details will be set out in the forthcoming UK Hydrogen strategy which will be published this year.
