Accelerating the UK’s hydrogen vision with the Hydrogen Innovation Initiative
Hydrogen is critical for decarbonising the most challenging areas of the economy. The emergence of new global markets for low-carbon hydrogen presents a major economic opportunity for UK businesses, in line with the UK Government’s ten-point plan for a green industrial revolution.
To maximise this opportunity, we must build up the number and size of globally investible UK supply chain companies working on hydrogen technologies and engineering services. Together with our partners we have combined our collective strengths, capabilities, national locations and industrial reach to create the Hydrogen Innovation Initiative. This unique partnership is working with government, industry, academia and Innovate UK to create an investible, globally competitive hydrogen technology and services sector, here in the UK.
Our mission is to accelerate the development of critical technologies and supply chains for the fast-growing hydrogen economy, supporting UK industry to anchor high-value jobs, boost resilience and drive decarbonisation.
Led by the HVM Catapult, the Catapult Network and its partners HII is working with industry to use innovation to build robust and resilient hydrogen technology supply chains in the UK and accelerating translational research to reach the government’s target of producing up to 35% of the UK’s energy from hydrogen by 2050.
