Randolph Brazier, Director of Innovation and Electricity Systems at Energy Networks Association which represents represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said:
“As we begin to build back greener and develop homegrown supply chains, the UK Government's investment into the research of hydrogen and batteries is encouraging. More renewables and batteries are being connected to the grid, the number of electric vehicles on the road is increasing, while hydrogen will slash emissions from heavier goods vehicles. The UK’s energy networks will continue our relentless focus on innovation, making sure that customers across the country see the benefits of a smarter, Net Zero energy system.”
