The Government is committed to exploring the development of hydrogen as a strategic decarbonised energy carrier. In line with this we are already investing up to £121m in hydrogen innovation across the value chain and are developing new policy to help bring forward the technologies and supply chain we will need to grow the UK hydrogen economy. This includes business models to support the deployment of, and investment in, low carbon hydrogen production and a £100m Low Carbon Hydrogen Production Fund to stimulate capital investment. We will be engaging with industry on both schemes throughout the year.
