E4tech helps define ‘low carbon hydrogen’ as part of the UK’s Hydrogen Strategy

As outlined in the new Hydrogen Strategy and the Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan, the UK’s ambition is to achieve 5GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030. There are a variety of different ways to produce hydrogen, and the associated GHG emissions depend on the inputs and technologies used. However, a definition of what is ‘low carbon’, including the GHG emissions methodology to be used, has not yet been set by the UK Government. In our new report for the UK’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), E4tech and LBST set out options and provided recommendations for how ‘low carbon hydrogen’ could be defined under a new UK standard, including indicative GHG emission thresholds.
