The ‘hydrogen economy’ is thought by many respected groups in industry and academia to have real potential to deliver a low carbon future over a timescale of 30-50 years. A Department for Trade and Industry (DTI, now BERR) commissioned report by the consultants E4Tech, Element Energy, and Eoin Lees, published in 2004, indicated that for the UK the use of hydrogen as a transport fuel offers significant opportunities for cost-competitive CO2 (carbon dioxide) reduction by 2030.

At an International level, the UK is a member of the International Energy Agency (IEA); and the International Partnership for the Hydrogen Economy (IPHE). The UK is pleased to participate in the FP6 Project HyWays - Developing a European Hydrogen Roadmap.
