The EU has published its hydrogen strategy for a climate-neutral Europe.

David Smith, Chief Executive of Energy Networks Association said:

“Creating a hydrogen economy is vital to hit our climate targets and drive forward green, economic growth. We support progress across the EU but it’s vital that it’s matched by action from the UK government. We need to build on our world-leading expertise and develop our own strategy, otherwise we risk being left behind in the international hydrogen race. A UK strategy will help to maintain our global leadership position as well as delivering long-term benefits to homes and businesses across the country.”
