To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment he has made of the implications for his policies of the level of funding for hydrogen strategies in other European countries; and if he will make a statement.
We are closely monitoring international hydrogen developments and participate in a range of international fora, including the International Partnership for Hydrogen for Fuel Cells in the Economy, Mission Innovation and Clean Energy Ministerial. These forums offer opportunities to discuss international activity on hydrogen, including strategies put forward by Germany, Denmark, and the European Commission. International strategies, including the level and type of funding committed, inform our own approach to developing hydrogen in the UK context. As we further progress our strategy, we will consider the international innovation and policy landscape and opportunities and challenges for the UK, building on activity to date.
