Hydrogen futures – catalyst clusters to regional rollout

17 May 2023
Decarbonisation – delivering net zero

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?
