Hydrogen Taskforce: Hydrogen is ready to power Green Recovery
The Hydrogen Taskforce has published a new Economic Impact Assessment that suggests hydrogen could generate £18bn for the UK economy by 2035, driving forward the country’s Green Recovery.
The newly launched Economic Impact Assessment examines the economic benefits hydrogen could generate throughout the value chain, including the economic impact of production, distribution and storage and in end uses ranging across transport, industry, heating and in power generation.
The research forecasts the 11.3 TWh (terawatt hours) of hydrogen would be required to support end us in sectors such as heat, transport, power and industry by 2035 annually. Of this annual demand, 20% could be met by green hydrogen and 80% by blue hydrogen.
