MPs call for evidence on clean hydrogen tech

The Parliamentary Environmental Audit Committee is looking for expert input on how hydrogen technology could help power the green transport revolution.

The Technological Innovation and Climate Change inquiry will examine technological innovations which could contribute to tackling climate change.

Each part of the inquiry will look at a specific technology currently in use or in development and consider its potential and how Government policy can facilitate the UK making the best and most cost-effective use of that technology.

This inquiry will be an opportunity to highlight UK-based examples of innovation and excellence, and the Committee is particularly keen to hear from those at the cutting edge of each sector.

MPs are looking for answers to questions such as:

  • How realistic is industry’s claim of widespread applicability of hydrogen technology in transport, heating and other sectors? Is hydrogen a cost-effective, feasible solution towards a low-carbon economy?   
  • How well has the Government raised awareness amongst industry, public officials and the general public of the potential for hydrogen to support a low-carbon economy?  
  • To what extent has the UK established, or can establish, any early adopter advantage in the use of hydrogen in research, applied science or industrial processes?
