Young Persons Network: East Coast Hydrogen Webinar

Ed Gilford and Lydia Vaughan, from National Gas, discussed what East Coast Hydrogen is all about, who is involved and how such a large collaborative project is managed.

East Coast Hydrogen is a collaborative programme which has the potential to connect over 7GW of hydrogen production by 2030. On its own, this would exceed the Government’s 5GW by 2030 target in a single region. The programme will benefit from the natural assets of the North of England, including existing and potential hydrogen storage facilities, and build on the hydrogen production in two of the UK’s largest industrial clusters in the North East and North West, in turn ensuring significant private sector investment in the UK’s industrial heartlands.
