The campaign, which is supported by a 70-strong caucus of cross-party parliamentarians and 60 leading businesses across the UK hydrogen industry, seeks views and evidence from industry on next steps for growing the UK’s hydrogen economy.
The findings will help shape the recommendations from the Hydrogen Policy Commission in their upcoming ‘Hydrogen Strategy: One year in’ report.
This Commission includes high-profile politicians such as Baroness Brown, former vice-chair of the Committee on Climate Change, Ben Houchen, Mayor of the Tees Valley Combined Authority and Lord McNicol, former General Secretary of the Labour Party.
Speaking exclusively to H2 View a spokesperson for the campaign, said, “In public policy statements, the Government says it is moving rapidly to create the policy and regulatory conditions conducive to attracting large-scale private investment in hydrogen.
“We are conducting our second annual ‘State of the Hydrogen Nation’ survey to gather evidence from industry on the real-world impact that policy decisions in Whitehall are having on investment, job creation, decarbonisation and energy security across the UK’s hydrogen industry.
“We also explore Industry’s confidence levels in the UK Government’s approach to hydrogen, as well as that of the devolved administrations and local authorities.”
This survey is open to organisations across the UK hydrogen industry and can be accessed here. It should take 10-15 minutes to complete.
North American Hydrogen Summit
H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.
As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.
With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
