Nuclear is a great way of producing hydrogen as it generates huge amounts of reliable, low-carbon energy.
One of the best ways of producing hydrogen is by splitting water molecules using an electrolyser. Using low-carbon nuclear energy to power the electrolyser means we can produce hydrogen which has no carbon emissions.
At Sizewell C, we are exploring how we can produce and use hydrogen in several ways.
Firstly, it could help lower emissions during construction of the power station. Secondly, once Sizewell C is operational, we hope to use some of the heat it generates (alongside electricity) to make hydrogen more efficiently.
