Hydrogen projects: regulation and consents

Hydrogen forms a key part of the government’s strategy to transition the UK from an energy system based predominantly on fossil fuels to a low (or zero) carbon, smarter and flexible energy system.

There is currently no comprehensive regulatory framework for the production, transportation and storage of hydrogen. Any party undertaking a hydrogen project in the UK currently faces a minefield of fragmented legislation and regulation, since the existing rules and policies were enacted before the emergence of hydrogen as a realistic fuel source.In August 2021, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) published the UK hydrogen strategy, together with a series of related consultations. The hydrogen strategy recognises the need to introduce a new legal and regulatory framework to support hydrogen’s continued development.

In a recent article, Gordon Nardell QC together with Cathal Leigh-Doyle and Andy Ross of Stephenson Harwood, share a reference guide for developers, public and private funders, and offtakers, progressing a hydrogen project in England.
