The Government expects up to 1GW of electrolytic hydrogen capacity to be in operation or construction in the UK by 2025. Support to date has come through innovation programmes, including the £33m Hydrogen Supply competition and its £60m successor. This year, electrolytic projects may apply for capital co-funding, through the £240m Net Zero Hydrogen Fund and revenue support through the first hydrogen business model allocation round. The Government expects the UK industry to be well placed to capitalise on opportunities from the emerging global hydrogen economy as they arise.
