Nuclear should be ‘at the heart’ of hydrogen production

New reactor technology could provide one-third of zero-carbon hydrogen by 2050

Nuclear power could produce one-third of the UK’s clean hydrogen needs by 2050, according to the Hydrogen Roadmap agreed by the Nuclear Industry Council (NIC), a joint forum between the nuclear industry and government. But the industry’s ability to make itself central to green hydrogen could be either helped or hindered by the outcome of a joint research report, due in a few weeks. The NIC produced a roadmap that claims Advanced Modular Reactors (AMRs), currently under development, offer one of the most promising innovations for green hydrogen production, since they will create temperatures high enough to split water without diverting electricity. “Nuclear power should be right
