New UK think tank to explore nuclear powered hydrogen production


A think tank established by the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (UK HFCA) will assess opportunities to advance the role of nuclear power to produce zero-carbon hydrogen.

Named the Nuclear Enabled Hydrogen Working Group, it aims to utilise nuclear thermal heat and electricity to contribute to the UK target of net zero on carbon emissions by 2050. 

Emphasising the importance of hydrogen’s role in the UK’s journey to net zero, Celia Greaves, CEO, UK HFCA, said that the organisation will continue to lead coordination with relevant groups to ensure the Government receives advice around the clean fuel. 

“Nuclear power plants can produce hydrogen through a variety of methods that would greatly reduce carbon emissions while taking advantage of the constant thermal energy and electricity it reliably provides,” she added.
