Fuel cells and hydrogen are ‘game changing’ solutions with extensive applications across transport, stationary power and beyond. Hydrogen as an energy carrier, and fuel cells as an enabler will be critical in the delivery of a clean energy future.
Currently, over 100 UK companies, as well as over 35 academic and contract research groups highly active in fuel cells and hydrogen, are contributing to the creation of this promising, global industry.
The UK is home to leading international hydrogen production, supply and storage companies. The UK fuel cell industry is characterised by a number of world class system developers, active across a range of application areas, and integrators. Others are developing and supplying innovative materials and components across the supply chain.
The UK is also internationally recognised for its research and consultancy services. They are active across many parts of the supply chain and address issues falling into categories including socio-economic, policy and market development.
