Consultation description

This consultation is seeking views on our preferred design of a low carbon hydrogen business model.

The government ambition is to deliver 5GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030 as laid out in the December 2020 UK Energy White Paper.

We are seeking views from industry on the following:

  • our overall approach to business model design
  • our minded-to positions on the primary design features, namely price support and volume support
  • options for other design features of the business model

The consultation is open to all but we expect responses in particular from those with an interest in low carbon hydrogen, including:

  • project developers
  • financial investors
  • trade associations

Please don’t send responses by post to the department at the moment as we may not be able to access them.
