Report launch (webinar): Opportunities for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies to contribute to clean growth in the UK

There is a growing focus in many countries on the roles that hydrogen and fuel cell (H2FC) technologies are likely to have in their future low-carbon energy systems. This report examines whether the UK is well placed to develop and secure some of the economic opportunities associated with this market, both in the UK and abroad, as part of the UK Government’s focus on clean growth.

The report identifies barriers and opportunities for the UK in emerging hydrogen and fuel cell value chains by comparing a range of UK and global energy decarbonisation studies and by surveying 196 companies working on hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, ranging from micro spin-offs to multinational companies with H2FC divisions. The authors make twelve recommendations to encourage hydrogen and fuel cell innovation in the UK by:

  • creating separate strategic visions for hydrogen and fuel cells;
  • fostering UK hydrogen and fuel cell markets; and,
  • nurturing a vibrant UK innovation ecosystem.


Insights from the new report will be presented by the main author Dr Paul Dodds during live video webinar. His presentation will be followed by commentary and a live Q&A discussion with panel members. The event will be chaired by Professor Nigel Brandon.
