As set out in December 2023’s Hydrogen Production Delivery Roadmap, the Government’s ambition for up to 10GW of low carbon hydrogen production by 2030 includes up to 6GW of electrolytic ‘green’ production capacity. The UK electrolytic hydrogen production pipeline has a variety of projects located all over the UK. The expected volume and supply of hydrogen (in Terra Watt hours) over the next ten years will depend on factors including future hydrogen demand, operating patterns of electrolytic hydrogen producers, and the specific projects that are successful in securing Government support for production under the Hydrogen Allocation Round process.
