Integrating and producing hydrogen in the UK to help achieve net zero emissions

The UK Hydrogen Strategy outlines the journey towards a low-carbon hydrogen sector in the UK—delivering an ambitious 10GW of low-carbon energy by 2030, supporting net zero emissions by 2050. UK Water Industry Research (UKWIR) set up its Integrating and Producing Hydrogen project to explore using water to reach those goals, commissioning us as the project team lead.

UKWIR is investigating the relationship between hydrogen production, water availability, emerging technologies, and the role water utilities can play in the hydrogen value chain. As the research contractor, we’re working with UKWIR, Ikigai, and Heriot Watt University to make the most of our combined industry experience and academic knowledge.

Upon completion, the project will provide an industry-level understanding of how water utilities can contribute within the hydrogen value chain and the current sector ambition in relation to the UK Hydrogen Strategy. This insight will offer analysis of the various technology options available and how these can be most beneficially leveraged by water companies. We'll then be able to shed light around what's possible with respect to water resource availability and core water utility services.
