My Rt. Hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy meets with my Rt. Hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport regularly to discuss all aspects of transport decarbonisation including the role for green hydrogen.

Officials from both departments work together bilaterally and through formal governance.

A good example of cross departmental working is the announcement of £3 million to support the development of the UK’s first Hydrogen Transport Hub in Tees Valley.
