Stakeholders are exploring the development of a UK hydrogen ‘backbone’, which aims to join industrial clusters around the country and consider how to link existing UK interconnectors with the EU hydrogen backbone. Hydrogen could support flexibility in power generation by providing a means of energy storage and consumption. However, a safe, compact, light and cost-efficient hydrogen storage method has yet to be demonstrated.

This POSTnote would consider the challenges and opportunities of creating a hydrogen transmission backbone for the UK, including the likely benefits and costs that may arise from the current approaches being envisioned.

Work on this briefing will commence in February 2024. We will be accepting stakeholder contributions until early April 2024.
