General – Green Hydrogen
Yesterday, leading think-tank IPPR North published ‘The Hydrogen Powerhouse’ report.
The report outlines how green hydrogen can help decarbonise the industrial belt across northern England, supporting swathes of energy-intensive industries to reduce emissions and make a significant contribution to net zero.
Chief Executive Keith Anderson of ScottishPower said: “We agree with its recommendations that the Government should prioritise development of green hydrogen and create the conditions to ramp up our renewable capacity to produce it at scale. The focus should be wholeheartedly on the hard to decarbonise sectors like heavy industry and transport.”
“The opportunity for hydrogen is huge – not only for net zero, but for developing a solid, robust market and supply chain, creating thousands of jobs for now and into the future.”
