The Carbon Trust has announced its new clean hydrogen accelerator, which aims to help secure the UK’s energy supply and support climate targets.

The project will join up industry players, backed by BEIS, the UK government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

The Clean Hydrogen Innovation Programme (CHIP) aims to speed up deployment of clean hydrogen by reducing end-to-end cost through technical innovation, so that it becomes cost competitive with conventional alternatives.
