The UK government presents a strategy for a hydrogen economy

The UK government on Tuesday announced a plan to achieve its goal of five gig watts (GW) of low-carbon hydrogen released by 2030 to extract natural gas to up to 3 million homes. In conjunction with industry and transport.

Businesses and lawmakers still want more hydrogen to interfere with hard-to-reach areas and reduce gas consumption, but financial requirements and scientific problems are high.

Almost all of the hydrogen produced by the UK government is far from compatible with fossil fuels.

The government expects to turn every part of its gas into “raw” hydrogen, made of renewable energy to separate water from hydrogen and oxygen.

It also uses “blue” hydrogen, which is produced by gas and air. Unlike hydrogen peroxide, hydrogen is not a blue hydrogen gas, but carbon dioxide emissions are extracted, stored, and used in other processes.

The UK government says $ 900 billion ($ 1.25 billion) will be available to support hydrogen projects in the UK, which it says will create more than 9,000 jobs by 2030.

As part of the plan, it announced a consensus on options to support hydrogen projects that could lower costs, as well as their differential contract (CfD) for the planting of renewable energy through price detection. Under the makers.

UK government and industry will also discuss the possibility of adding 20%   hydrogen to existing gas supplies.

He will also talk about setting up a £ 200 million hydrogen fund to support the promotion of low-hydrogen plants.


The European Union also has high hopes that hydrogen will help achieve a low carbon footprint.

Last year, the Commission, the EU’s regulatory representative, issued a directive to prioritize hydrogen laundry for use on hard surfaces such as steel.

 NSE -2.96%, the largest hydrogen producer in Europe, said it saw the hydrogen economy as a good opportunity to reduce emissions.

“But the government should start doing so to support the development of hydrogen infrastructure in the UK,” INEOS Commerce Affairs Director Tom Crotty said in a statement on Tuesday.

The UK emits 27 terawatt-hours (TWh) of hydrogen per year, mostly from biological sources.

According to the UK government’s decision on climate change for the Climate Change Committee, to achieve a state-free tax return by 2050, 270 TWh of electricity will be needed. Hydrogen, usually blue. Within a year, 1 GW equals 8.76 TWh.

Some environmental groups say producing hydrogen peroxide in UK projects could protect the country from blocking fruit juices.

There are similar complaints about unknown carbon and storage technologies.

A study conducted last week by American universities Cornell and Stanford found that hydrogen blue is 20% more harmful to the environment than greenhouse gases in homes and businesses due to carbon dioxide emissions.
