“I very much welcome the announcement about the Hydrogen centre. I am wholly supportive of the development and deployment of hydrogen in our transport system.
“I am also pleased that the Teesside proposal has gained Government support as it is the ideal location given our existing hydrogen expertise to develop hydrogen fuelled transport. Hydrogen can play a huge part in reducing carbon emissions from transport, which is the largest carbon emitting sector of our economy. Measures to bring about reductions are extremely welcome.”
