Supporting the Growth of the Clean Hydrogen Economy in Northern Ireland.
Northern Ireland has the resources, ambition and expertise to develop a world-leading clean hydrogen economy. With a number of successful projects and initiatives already underway, the coming years present major opportunities that will lead to increased levels of investment, job creation and decarbonisation. Hydrogen NI brings together stakeholders from across the sector and provides a voice for the industry as we work to deliver a thriving clean hydrogen economy in NI.

Unparalleled environmental and economic benefits
Clean hydrogen will play a central role if Northern Ireland is to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. In particular, it will be essential to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels across heat and transport.
EU figures show that investments in renewable hydrogen could reach €470 billion across Europe in the next 30 years. NI is uniquely positioned to benefit from this investment.
It is estimated that growing the hydrogen economy could unlock 75,000 jobs across the UK by 2035. With the right approach NI can create thousands of sustainable jobs in the clean hydrogen sector.
Representing NI's clean hydrogen sector with policy makers and decision takers
Policies set now will help determine the success of NI’s clean hydrogen economy for years to come. At Hydrogen NI we represent our members by engaging with the NI Executive, government departments, elected representatives, local authorities and policy makers to ensure the views of the industry are heard.
Promoting the benefits of clean hydrogen in the media
Hydrogen NI provides a voice for Northern Ireland’s clean hydrogen sector in the media. With spokespeople covering all areas of the sector we promote the benefits of the clean hydrogen economy and inform public debate.
Creating an understanding of clean hydrogen's role in the energy transition
While hydrogen has been around for a long time, clean hydrogen as a fuel is a relatively new concept not widely understood by the public. Through strategic engagement and education initiatives Hydrogen NI is raising awareness of the emerging role of clean hydrogen in the energy transition and our everyday lives.
