A Brief Overview of the New Hydrogen Sector Development Action Plan

In this course, we will look at the new hydrogen sector development action plan which sets out the government's view of the current and future opportunities across the hydrogen economy in the UK.

On 20 July 2022, the government published its Hydrogen Sector Development Action Plan. This follows on from the UK Hydrogen Strategy (published in August 2021) and the British Energy Security Strategy, the latter of which doubled the government's 2030 target for low carbon hydrogen production capacity to 10GW. The newly published action plan aims to highlight the nature and scale of opportunities across the hydrogen economy in the UK, focusing on four key areas: investment; supply chains; jobs and skills; and exports.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  1. Understand how the action plan will focus on investment; supply chains; jobs and skills; and exports
  2. Explain how the plan builds on the government's existing policies and strategies for hydrogen
