Global independent engineering and consultancy firm Arup and E4Tech have been appointed by the Scottish Government to undertake a study on the potential to use hydrogen in Scotland.

Arup and E4Tech will carry out an in-depth analysis of Scotland’s strengths, assets, and factors that will shape hydrogen development in the country and explore how hydrogen can be developed to help achieve net zero emissions targets. Arup is developing a strategic plan for the development of hydrogen technology in Scotland and the UK.

The in-depth investigation will also identify the potential economic impact and benefits that investments in the hydrogen sector could unleash.

The first report and evaluation will be finalized by the end of this year.

Clare Lavelle, Arup’s Energy Leader for Scotland, said, “Hydrogen can bring many benefits as a low carbon energy source – we’re committed to supporting the Scottish Government is exploring how it could potentially help to achieve net-zero emissions by 2045.”

“Scotland’s natural resources, existing industrial skills, and ambitious carbon reduction targets will be key to unlocking the true benefits that the hydrogen economy can bring.”

The first report and evaluation will be finalized by the end of this year.
