The Hydrogen Economy

The British Energy Security Strategy announced on 7th April 2022 the UK Government’s intention to double its ambition to up to 10GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030, with at least half of this target coming from electrolytic hydrogen. Government has committed to meet the aspiration of 2GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity in operation or construction by 2025, with 1GW for electrolytic hydrogen.

To achieve this goal, concerted effort and cooperation from industry, Government, regulators, the investment community, and other key organisations is required to ensure that all pieces of the jigsaw puzzle come together.

This REA event, without the ‘hydrogen hype’, will bring together key stakeholders and experts to discuss the latest policy, regulatory and technical developments supporting the hydrogen economy as well as showcasing industry and looking at the practical implementation of key regulatory and standard requirements for projects to get off the ground.

Key topics discussed will include :

  • Key policy levers to support the scaling up of the sector
  • Breaking the ‘chicken and egg’ cycle – scaling up supply and demand
  • Make hydrogen blending happen
  • Full hydrogen heating landscape from blending to conversion
  • Importance of regional approaches to hydrogen development
  • System benefits of electrolytic hydrogen
  • integration of development RTFCs into business models
  • Progress made with Hydrogen Guarantees of Origin
  • Implementing additionality across different policies
  • Alternative hydrogen production pathways

Confirmed speakers include :

  • Alison Conboy – Deputy Director, Hydrogen Production, BEIS
  • Tommy Isaac – Head of Hydrogen Research, Progressive Energy Limited
  • William Mezzullo – Head of Hydrogen, Centrica
  • Jesse Scharf – Scheme Director, Green Gas Certification Scheme
