Nuclear industry eyes key role in hydrogen transition

Sector can produce large amounts of low-carbon hydrogen from electricity or high heat, says lobby group

Pink hydrogen produced by nuclear power could soon be cost-competitive with green and blue hydrogen, according to Brussels-based nuclear industry group Foratom. Nuclear power plants produce large amounts of electricity and heat, both of which can be used to make low-carbon hydrogen. Existing reactors can power electrolysis to produce green hydrogen, while after 2030 thermochemical water-splitting using advanced modular reactors could offer an alternative mode of production. China is also developing very-high-temperature reactors, which can split water into hydrogen and oxygen. "Nuclear power can make a strong contribution to the hydrogen transition. We are talking about large, stable volu
