About this talk
Sponsored by ScottishPower
The bubble of excitement around the potential benefits from an emerging hydrogen sector is ever increasing. With more than £350m capital grant funding expected to be unleashed by both the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Scottish Government in coming months, the bubble of excitement will quickly have to move to real projects..
The hydrogen supply and demand ecosystem can benefit greatly from the clustering of demand across multiple users and therefore this session focuses on example clusters coming to reality across the UK. Initial phases of these projects may be centred around an immediate customer and use, but each region can highlight a vast and ambitious vision that will greatly impact the nation’s Net Zero goals.
However, in order to deliver these ambitious projects, the longer-term market dynamics will be critical and forecasting in an emerging market can greatly influence imminent investment decisions. The role of supply chain growth and ambitions of major industrial organisations is a foundation for clean sector jobs, economic value, and hydrogen economy growth across the UK and beyond.
Hear our panel discuss real projects underway which will lay the groundwork for regional transformation as well as the influence of the larger market-shaping factors of the hydrogen economy into the next decade. Bring your searching questions to the session to help stimulate even more discussion and debate.
