In its latest paper, Fuelling the Future, Policy Exchange has drawn together evidence for hydrogen’s place in the UK. It outlines two high-level issues that have halted industry and the government’s willingness to engage in its application to date. In this week’s Pixie Chart of the week, we examine these two issues.
The first is the need for greater cost-effectiveness, scalability and sustainability with most applications not currently economically feasible. The second is the need for a more systematic approach to hydrogen. Its widely-scoped application in sectors such as heat and transport emphasises the need for a consistent and interconnected approach.
