Title : Green hydrogen by 2030 in UK


Green Hydrogen is increasing rapidly across Europe with the UK highly involved in the electrochemical catalysts required. This year is significant because proof is emerging that electrolysis based on solar and wind power can produce green hydrogen that can compete economically with fossil fuels such as diesel. Both the fuel cell and the electrolyser technologies are important, requiring precious metals at present. The paper describes the supply chain issues, especially matching the hydrogen applications in transport and built environment with the manufacture through green electrolysis, while reviewing the exponential growth worldwide.

Audience Takeaway Notes:

  • The audience will see the connection between fuel cell and electrolyser green technologies
  • Both the fuel and oxygen electrode catalyst performance will be revealed
  • The research covers the supply chain principles from renewable energy availability to utilization of the product green hydrogen.
  • The priorities needing attention are explained in detail
