The delivery plan was set up by Cadent, National Gas and Northern Gas Networks to join together to make a valuable contribution to the UK’s net zero target, by creating a cost-efficient hydrogen network. This will help with the decarbonisation of industry and power generation.

The report provides a strategic outline for delivery of the East Coast Hydrogen (ECH2) Programme and the opportunities and benefits it can bring.

The event saw a range of speakers including a keynote address from Lord Callanan; Head of Regional Development at Cadent, Sally Brewis who covered the 'Needs Case' and network plan and Alexander Stafford, Vice-Chairman of the APPG on Hydrogen.
