Bringing hydrogen and nuclear together
Nuclear generates always-on, low-carbon power and for years has provided around 20% of the UK’s electricity. Hydrogen only produces water when it burns and has great potential as a clean fuel for transport, industry, and home heating.
One of the best ways of producing hydrogen is by splitting water molecules using an electrolyser. Using low-carbon nuclear energy to power the electrolyser means we can produce hydrogen which has no carbon emissions.
