Our Policy Conference this year is sharply focused on the next steps for hydrogen and the evidence gathering to support decision-making on the role of hydrogen in our net zero energy system.

Our keynote speakers from BEIS and the Climate Change Committee will be outlining the latest on industrial decarbonisation, which then introduces a spotlight session on some of the hydrogen producers and consumers as work progresses to establish Hydrogen SuperPlaces. 

We’ll also get to hear about the supply-demand challenge of decarbonisation and the cutting-edge planning from networks as they ready themselves for hydrogen conversion, before heading into the hydrogen neighbourhood and village projects and the supplier proposition for customers switching to hydrogen

There will plenty of opportunities for delegates to ask questions and network with like-minded colleagues.
