Is Douglas Fraser not following gov.scot? Should he?
From the Scottish Government today:
The hydrogen sector will receive £100 million over the next five years to support a green recovery and Scotland’s just transition to net zero. Scotland is set to become a leading hydrogen nation, with an ambition to generate 5GW of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen by 2030 – enough to power the equivalent of 1.8 million homes. Economic impact research suggests the industry has the potential to be worth up to £25 billion a year to the Scottish economy by 2045.
Scotland’s Energy Minister Paul Wheelhouse said:
“We are the first country in the UK to publish a Hydrogen Policy Statement that sets out how we can make the most of Scotland’s massive potential in this new sector. Hydrogen is rapidly emerging across the international community as a sustainable solution for the decarbonisation of the economy and a key element of the energy transition picture. Scotland is prepared to play its full part together with other European nations – that’s why we’re publishing this key policy statement today and investing £100 million of Scottish Government resources to stimulate the sector and its supply chain.
