National Grid: ‘Hydrogen, carbon capture and storage must be deployed for net zero’

The system operator also suggests at least 3GW of wind and 1.4GW of solar need to be built in the UK every year from now until 2050

Hydrogen and carbon capture and storage must be deployed and operational this decade to help the UK meet its net zero target.

The system operator notes the development of carbon capture usage and storage (CCUS) projects needs support from policymakers, regulators and industry.
