Client: UK Committee on Climate Change (CCC)
E4tech led a project developing hydrogen scenarios to 2050 for the Committee on Climate Change, with UCL and Kiwa Gastec. This involved developing descriptive scenarios for the development of hydrogen across all energy sectors, informed by modelling using the UKTM energy systems model, and Kiwa Gastec’s practical experience in hydrogen projects. The scenarios considered the technology developments, infrastructure requirements, business model needs and energy systems implications of conversion to hydrogen, and were fully costed. We then considered the strategic implications in five year time steps to 2035, including policy requirements, risks, short term no/low regrets actions, and decision points.
