Hydrogen Taskforce – Economic Impact Assessment

Published on 12th August, the report claims that Hydrogen is ready to power the UK’s Green recovery. Some highlights include:

  • Investing in hydrogen could unlock £18bn in GVA by 2035 and support 75,000 additional jobs.
  • Around 125 TWh of hydrogen would be required to support end-use sectors such as heat, transport, power and industry by 2035 annually.
  • Of this annual demand, 20% could be met by green hydrogen (electrolysis) and 80% by blue hydrogen (ATR plus CCUS).
  • This would unlock 28,600 jobs in hydrogen production, including 12,542 jobs in electrolyser manufacturing and 10,482 jobs in ATR.
  • Many of these jobs would be concentrated in the north-west and north-east.
  • £5.3bn in GVA cumulatively by 2035 and 15,437 total jobs could be created in the storage, distribution and transmission of hydrogen across the UK.
  • By 2035 annually: 12.1 TWh support transport 55.3 TWh support heat. (residential and commercial) 36.6 TWh support industry. 21.3 TWh support power generation
  • This would create 30,631 total jobs across downstream (end-use) sectors such as vehicles, boilers and industrial equipment.
