Hydrogen could be at the centre of Scotland’s economy

Energy secretary Michael Matheson has asserted that “Hydrogen may be Scotland’s greatest industrial opportunity since oil and gas."

Hydrogen and other renewable energies could be "at the centre of the economy," according to a recent study outlining the Scottish Government's intentions for the economics of an independent Scotland. The Scottish Government released its draft hydrogen action plan last year, outlining how to grow the industry with the aim of having an installed production capacity of five gigawatts (GW) by 2030, rising to 25GW by 2045.

During European Hydrogen Week, Matheson will travel to promote Scottish hydrogen production. If the hydrogen industry experiences a development spurt, Scotland may have its "biggest industrial opportunity since oil and gas," according to the nation's energy secretary. According to Matheson, hydrogen may be used to fuel the generation of heat or electricity, so it can be utilised to help Scotland reach its net zero targets.
