The Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) is to seek advice on the role of low-carbon hydrogen production and utilisation in accordance with the UK’s wider efforts to spur economic growth and reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The EAC is launching the session as part of its Technological Innovation and Climate Change inquiry. The session will aim to explore the potential usages for hydrogen and ensuring that clean, low-carbon hydrogen is produced. The EAC’s chairman Philip Dunne MP said: “As we near our commitment of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, we must consider all options to generate energy that does not harm the environment. Hydrogen could form part of the solution – but it must be produced, stored and used in ways that do not create harmful emissions and maintain the highest safety standards.
