Asked by: Gillian Martin, Aberdeenshire East, Scottish National Party
Date lodged: 9 November 2021
To ask the Scottish Government when it plans to publish its draft Hydrogen Action Plan.
Current status: Answered by Michael Matheson on 10 November 2021
The Scottish Government published its Draft Hydrogen Action Plan for consultation today. This follows the publication of the Hydrogen Policy Statement in December 2020 which outlined the Scottish Government’s policy position on hydrogen and our vision for Scotland to become a Hydrogen Nation.
This Draft Hydrogen Action Plan sets out what the Scottish Government will do and how we will work with others over the next five years to support the development of the hydrogen economy in Scotland which will further our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from our energy system, industry, homes and transport, while ensuring a just transition to net zero.
We are seeking views on the Draft Hydrogen Action Plan and the accompanying Strategic Environmental Assessment and Partial Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment. Responses are invited by 19 January 2022 and can be submitted at the Scottish Government's consultation platform, Citizen Space:
The Scottish Government will review responses to the consultation to inform development of the final version of the Hydrogen Action Plan.
