A Hydrogen Society is one in which hydrogen and low-carbon electricity help all of us with our everyday energy needs. A Hydrogen Society is one in which hydrogen plays a vital part in keeping our buildings and homes warm, greening public transport and providing low-carbon electricity when we need it.
Net zero emissions will require wide use of hydrogen to replace fossil fuels, ranging from buses to container ships, to reduce emissions from industry, and to replace natural gas in heating our homes, offices and factories.
The switch to hydrogen will also sustain tens of thousands of jobs in the UK’s oil and gas, and manufacturing sectors, while creating jobs in new sectors, such as hydrogen aviation, and delivering prosperity across the UK.
Industry is already making real progress, investing in exciting projects which will help unlock hydrogen’s potential in the UK.
But barriers to hydrogen remain. So, we want to work with the public, local councils and government to realise hydrogen’s full potential, and build a Hydrogen Society.
