Hydrogen futures – catalyst clusters to regional rollout
This session will explore the potential for a thriving hydrogen economy – from production, transmission and storage through to a range of potential end uses, including power, transport and heating. Join us to discover how we can move from pilots to large scale deployment in the years ahead:
What is the government’s long-term vision for hydrogen? When will there be policy certainty?
What progress is being made to establish hydrogen industrial clusters and what should success look like for these proof of concept hubs?
What have we learned from innovation and demonstration projects about the technical and commercial viability of hydrogen for domestic heating?
How viable is the use of hydrogen for energy storage and when might we expect this to become a reality?
