Job Description from Civil Service Jobs

We are looking to recruit an HEO in the Hydrogen and Industrial Carbon Capture Business Model team to help design the future hydrogen allocation rounds that will financially support projects to make the hydrogen economy a reality.

Government’s ambition is to deploy 10GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030 with 5GW coming from non-CCUS technologies in operation or construction. The first hydrogen allocation round (HAR1) closed in December with 125MW of projects awarded support. The second hydrogen allocation round (HAR2) opened in December for applications and aims to award support to 875MW of low carbon hydrogen projects. We are looking to run annual allocations to meet the production capacity.

The focus of this role will be the design and delivery of future allocation rounds (HAR3 onwards). You will help to find an allocation mechanism which allows us to scale up deployment while ensuring that projects are value for money. You will take into account learnings from previous rounds and monitor how the hydrogen economy develops internationally. The role will involve policy making and engagement with a number of DESNZ teams, HMT as well as industry and external advisors.

Our team sits within the Hydrogen and Industrial Carbon Capture Directorate, a fast-paced and exciting directorate that is at the heart of DESNZ energy and climate policy.

Our team accommodates a range of part-time and other flexible working patterns. We encourage applications from people from the widest possible diversity of backgrounds, cultures and experiences. This is very important to us.
