The UK government’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has released its Hydrogen Sector Development Action Plan. The purpose of this Sector Development Action Plan is to highlight the nature and scale of opportunities across the hydrogen economy in the UK. It focuses on four key areas: investment; supply chains; jobs and skills; and exports. It sets out actions in those areas being taken by government and industry to maximise the benefits from scaling up the UK hydrogen economy.

Analysis by BEIS suggests that the 10GW ambition could mobilise over £9 billion of private investment in production alone, and support more than 12,000 jobs by 2030 across production, distribution and storge, including domestic and exports. Significantly higher investment and jobs figures are expected across the wider supply chain.
