GMB, the energy union, has responded to reports the gas grid will have the capacity to blend 20 per cent of the fuel into the regular gas grid from next year.

Andy Prendergast, GMB National Secretary, said:

"The Government needs to get its act together and establish a national plan to support UK hydrogen.

"A successful domestic hydrogen industry would help secure the nation's energy supplies, cut carbon emissions, and create thousands of good jobs.

"As the UK renewables sector continues to send valuable fabrication and manufacturing work overseas, hydrogen production offers a brighter future where green jobs finally start delivering for workers here at home."
