In 2045 the GVA contribution is expected to be highest in Green Export in which roughly £26 bn of value is generated. The considerable activity associated with large scale roll-out of green hydrogen production contributes significant added value and export potential (see Figure 40). Green Export also delivers the most employment with more than 300,000 jobs either retained or created (see Figure 41).

By contrast, in Hydrogen Economy the more widespread use of hydrogen domestically such as in heat and transport ensures that this scenario also makes a significant contribution in terms of GVA generating £16 bn and 177,000 jobs created. The broader use of hydrogen domestically ensures that value added and jobs are more evenly distributed across sectors in Hydrogen Economy relative to Scenario B. While Focused Hydrogen has lower overall amounts of hydrogen produced and used with hydrogen generating GVA of £5.7 bn and 69,000 jobs, it has the potential to deliver localised value in regions and more even distribution of activities.

The Energy Central Power Industry Network is based on one core idea - power industry professionals helping each other and advancing the industry by sharing and learning from each other.

If you have an experience or insight to share or have learned something from a conference or seminar, your peers and colleagues on Energy Central want to hear about it. It's also easy to share a link to an article you've liked or an industry resource that you think would be helpful.
