High gas prices shift optimal hydrogen production to nuclear, says IAEA

High gas prices shift optimal hydrogen production to nuclear, says IAEA

Nuclear energy will be the most cost-effective means of producing clean hydrogen when natural gas prices are high, according to a new study by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The IAEA said the study "underscored the importance of having a diverse mix of low-carbon sources for a successful clean energy transition."

UK sees role for nuclear in hydrogen economy

UK sees role for nuclear in hydrogen economy

The UK government says nuclear will play a significant role in developing a thriving low-carbon hydrogen sector to meet the country's ambition for 5GW of low-carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030. Releasing its Hydrogen Strategy today, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy said a hydrogen economy could support over 9000 UK jobs and unlock GBP4 billion (USD5.5 billion) in investment by 2030, potentially rising to 100,000 jobs and worth up to GBP13 billion by 2050.
