Lack of hydrogen strategy is holding Britain back from capitalising on delivering net-zero, says the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC).
Last month, the EAC held an evidence session on hydrogen as part of their inquiry into technological innovation and climate change.
Based on this evidence, Philipp Dunne, MP and chairman of the committee has written to Business Secretary Alok Sharma, stating that although the UK has the expertise to scale up low-carbon hydrogen, it lags behind other nations such as Australia, Canada and Japan who have all launched ambitious strategies.
The government has identified that hydrogen is the most cost-effective option for decarbonising several parts of the UK energy system, however in terms of technology and understanding the UK risks missing an opportunity.
