Environmental permitting of hydrogen production - Online


Event Details

This event is closed.

In 2019, the UK produced around 27 TWh of hydrogen (Committee on Climate Change, May 2019). By 2050, and to achieve Net-Zero carbon, the National Grid estimates UK hydrogen demand will be between 152 TWh and 591 TWh, requiring somewhere between a 5- and 22-fold increase in production capacity.

Along with the projected growth in the hydrogen economy will come the need for increased diversification of hydrogen production, with a focus on emerging electrolytic and steam methane reforming with carbon capture to achieve Net-Zero ambitions. This rise in hydrogen production brings with it the requirement of operators to obtain and comply with the conditions of environmental permits.


This webinar will discuss the environmental permitting of hydrogen production, delving into the important details surrounding the appropriate permits for the range of hydrogen production methods available. Topics that will be covered include the different types of permits and their requirements (from low impact installation standard rules environmental permits to bespoke environmental permits), explaining the application criteria and highlighting the Environment Agency’s latest updates to evidence reviews and draft guidance.
