Government launches new Hydrogen Advisory Council

The Government launched a new Hydrogen Advisory Council today (July 21) to help to develop hydrogen as a decarbonisation strategy for the UK.

Collaboration between Government and Industry will ensure the Council can identify and promote the work needed to roll out supply of low carbon hydrogen at scale across the energy system.

The Council will be co-chaired by the Minister for Business, Energy and Clean Growth Kwasi Kwarteng and UK Country Chair of Shell, Sinead Lynch, with other members yet to be announced.

The team will work to address challenges or problems that might be faced, as well as to maximise opportunities for UK businesses to benefit from.

Announcing the Council on LinkedIn, Sinead Lynch said:

“I’ve talked before about the enormous potential that hydrogen has to decarbonise sectors such as transport, heating and industry.

“At Shell we’re already part of several initiatives, both in the UK and globally, looking at the future of hydrogen, and I’m pleased to share that today the UK Government launched the Hydrogen Advisory Council that I will co-chair with Minister Kwarteng. The aim of this council will be to explore and advance the development of hydrogen as a decarbonised energy carrier for the UK and identify the priority actions which industry and Government can take to unlock its potential in the 2020s.

“The journey to a low carbon economy requires a coordinated and collaborative response and this group will play an important role in realising the potential of hydrogen in reaching this goal.”
