The UK Government has today announced its plans to deliver the world’s first low-carbon industrial sector.

Commenting on the publication of the UK Government's Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy, Matt Hindle, Head of Gas at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said:

"Today's announcement is welcome, providing another example of the exciting role that hydrogen has to play in reducing our carbon emissions. Britain's gas networks will be at the centre of industrial decarbonisation, connecting the infrastructure that's needed to deliver the promise of new green jobs in our industrial heartlands. What's key is that the Government now gets the policy detail right to deliver the investment required. We look forward to working with them to do that."
