Low carbon technology working together is the right approach to take

Tom Greatrex | Nuclear Industry Association

We hope the Government will support “green” hydrogen, since our goal is to use hydrogen to reduce emissions.

The UK Government’s commitment to large, small and advanced nuclear as part of the future energy mix is an important pointer towards how we will achieve net zero.

All zero emissions technologies will need to play their part for net zero to become a reality.

It is welcome to see the scale of that ambition recognised, with detail to come in the Energy White Paper, which will be vitally important. Meeting net zero while delivering long term, skilled jobs, economic growth and export potential are the opportunities for the country.

Low carbon technology working together – not being pitted against each other – is the right approach to take.

We welcome the Government setting a 2030 target for low-carbon hydrogen production.

Nuclear power can produce clean, “green” hydrogen without any carbon emissions, so it has a critical role to play in developing the hydrogen economy.

We hope the Government will support “green” hydrogen, since our goal is to use hydrogen to reduce emissions.

There is no use in deploying hydrogen if we have to emit large amount of carbon to create it
