Delegates will consider what is needed to develop the supply chain, as well as investment and commercialisation, alongside the practicalities of scaling up long-term supply and supporting increased production, storage, distribution and use, whilst addressing the cost gap between hydrogen and fossil fuels.
Expect to hear keynote contributions from Antony Green, Hydrogen Director, Gas Transmission, National Grid, James Richardson, Chief Economist, National Infrastructure Commission; and a senior speaker confirmed from BEIS.
The conference will also be an opportunity to discuss a number of key measures due to be released in early 2022 to support deployment and investment including a Hydrogen Sector Development Action Plan; the Net Zero Hydrogen Fund; a UK standard for low carbon hydrogen; and the Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply 2 competition.
Hear latest thinking on:
- Hydrogen Strategy - support for R&D and commercialisation, integration into the energy mix, role in decarbonisation plans, and achieving the sector’s economic potential
- Implementation - developing production, distribution, storage and use, plus business models, strategic planning, scaling up, and addressing the fossil fuels cost gap
- Market and regulatory frameworks - as well as relationships with the wider energy system
- Partnerships and growth - collaboration to support innovation, and development of international hydrogen markets and export opportunities
