Electrolytic Hydrogen Production
The electrolytic hydrogen supply chain does not start and finish at production.
Electrolytic hydrogen offers multiple economic opportunities, such as high values jobs, across the supply chain, from water treatment to the manufacture of electrolyser stacks and their components. In the UK, it is estimated that the electrolytic supply chain could be worth up to £5 billion by 2030 and nearly £30 billion by 205074.
Therefore, not only can the UK become a world leader in the production of electrolytic hydrogen, but in the manufacture of key components in the supply chain, supporting a thriving export economy of high value goods such as electrolyser stacks.
The economic growth from the domestic supply chain can also support the levelling-up agenda with many of the manufacturing opportunities and the associated decarbonisation opportunities in levelling-up areas.
