As the week draws to a close, a new chapter for the UK has begun. With Liz Truss having won the Conservative leadership election, ahead of Rishi Sunak, she has now taken residence in 10 Downing Street as Prime Minister. With a fresh cabinet around her, Truss is faced with the monumental challenge of surging energy prices, which appear set to define her premiership.
Despite hydrogen’s potential to secure energy supply being recognised by many, the industry’s nascency means it is unlikely to play a short-term role in the UK’s attempt to combat surging costs and security fears. However, Truss’ first winter in office could be a key indicator as to what the future holds for the industry.
