As the summer date for the publication of the UK hydrogen strategy comes ever nearer it was good to engage with the APPG


A most useful session dedicated to discussing how policy-makers and industry can work with consumer groups to best communicate hydrogen conversion to the public. 


The involvement of the Citizens Advice Bureau as a statutory stakeholder representing the consumer at policy level is great to sea and there were telling contributions from those involved with the build out of Hydeploy at Keele and aspirations of linking hydrogen with nuclear generation in East Anglia


With 39 million UK homes to be impacted in coming years the need for effective communications is vital and aspects such as the emission of water rather than fumes from car exhaust plus the safe running of hydrogen busses can help make the public comfortable with the new technologies


Perceptive questions around costs from the chair, Jacob Young, combined with perceptive and informative contributions from the speakers:


·       Zoe Guijarro, Senior Policy Researcher, Future Energy Services, Citizens Advice Bureau

·       Julia Pyke, Director of Sizewell C Financing & Economic Regulation

·        Professor Zoe Robinson, Co-Director, Institute for Sustainable Futures at Keele University
