The UK HFCA is delighted to be collaborating on the ‘Hydrogen Strategy Now’ Campaign.
This campaign involves many leading businesses that operate in the UK, and who are, like the UK HFCA, united in the belief that hydrogen has a big role to play in meeting our Net Zero ambitions. An open letter has been submitted to the Chancellor, and the Campaign is rapidly gaining momentum, with support from a range of cross-party MPs.
UK HFCA Chair Amanda Lyne noted ‘the need for a UK hydrogen strategy has been a core theme of our campaigning for the past couple of years; with post-COVID recovery plans currently taking shape and the key role for hydrogen across all aspects of clean growth, a UK hydrogen strategy couldn’t be more timely’.
