Green Industries Growth Accelerator: Hydrogen and CCUS supply chains call for evidence

Closed 23 Apr 2024

Opened 27 Feb 2024


The Green Industries Growth Accelerator (GIGA) is a £960 million fund to support the expansion of strong and sustainable clean energy supply chains across the UK, including: carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) and hydrogen; offshore wind and electricity networks; and civil nuclear. This is part of a wider £4.5 billion package of funding for manufacturing to support private sector investment in strategic sectors across the UK. GIGA will focus on supporting jobs and investment by expanding manufacturing capacity and removing supply chain bottlenecks.  

Why your views matter

This engagement exercise will support us in gauging CCUS and hydrogen market readiness for GIGA funding, ahead of intended launch in the summer of 2024. 

GIGA will seek to maximise the economic opportunity of the net zero transition for the UK, target support at key strategic elements of the supply chain and sustain quality jobs across the UK. A secure and competitive supply chain in the CCUS and hydrogen sectors will be critical in supporting the UK’s deployment ambitions within these nascent industries.

What happens next

A response to this call for evidence will be published once the government has analysed all the data. Further information on the next steps will be outlined in that response document ahead of the intended launch in the summer of 2024.
