UK sees role for nuclear in hydrogen economy

UK sees role for nuclear in hydrogen economy

The UK government says nuclear will play a significant role in developing a thriving low-carbon hydrogen sector to meet the country's ambition for 5GW of low-carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030. Releasing its Hydrogen Strategy today, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy said a hydrogen economy could support over 9000 UK jobs and unlock GBP4 billion (USD5.5 billion) in investment by 2030, potentially rising to 100,000 jobs and worth up to GBP13 billion by 2050.

Nuclear stands out for clean hydrogen, says French parliamentary report

Nuclear stands out for clean hydrogen, says French parliamentary report

Only nuclear energy and hydropower present the double advantage of being controllable and carbon-free, according to a report on hydrogen production published by the French Parliamentary Office for Scientific and Technological Assessment. To produce low-carbon hydrogen on a global scale, 400 GW of nuclear capacity would be needed, it says.

Foratom highlights nuclear's role in EU hydrogen economy

Foratom highlights nuclear's role in EU hydrogen economy

Nuclear provides a perfect solution for the generation of large quantities of low-carbon and affordable hydrogen, the European nuclear trade body Foratom said today in a position paper. This, it said, will be key as Europe aims to transform all parts of its economy, including transport and industry. The position paper makes a number of policy recommendations aimed at recognising the contribution nuclear energy can make in decarbonising such areas.

Canada launches strategy to become global hydrogen leader

Canada launches strategy to become global hydrogen leader

The Canadian government has launched a strategy that sees low-carbon and zero-emission hydrogen fuel technology as a key part of the nation's path to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The strategy is underpinned by a federal investment of CAD1.5 billion (USD1.2 billion) in a Low-carbon and Zero-emissions Fuels Fund to increase the production and use of low-carbon fuels, including hydrogen.

Hydrogen policies must include nuclear, says NNWI

Hydrogen policies must include nuclear, says NNWI

Nuclear-produced hydrogen, using electrolyser technology, could have a "sizeable contribution" to make in the development of the hydrogen economy, according to a new report from the New Nuclear Watch Institute think-tank. However, it says the realisation of those benefits will depend on the adoption of technology-neutral policies, which do not discriminate against nuclear power.
