Business West response to UK government’s hydrogen strategy

17th August 2021

Responding to a long-awaited hydrogen strategy for the UK’s burgeoning hydrogen sector Head of Climate Strategy at Business West Nina Skubala comments:

“The much-awaited hydrogen strategy rightly identifies hydrogen as playing a key role in decarbonisation, whilst it can have many applications, it’s all about creating it without generating carbon and finding the right job for it to do.

“Its role in heating homes is limited, but for power, industry and parts of the transport sector it offers some fantastic opportunities to decarbonise.

“Here, in the West, we have a number of assets that help us grow a hydrogen economy: our motorway system, port, airport and industry. We also have the means to create pink hydrogen using nuclear and small modular reactors.”
