The Hydrogen Economy: Decarbonising the UK energy sector (hosted by Costain)
07 Nov 2018, Costain House, Aviator Way, Manchester Business Park, Manchester M22 5TG
Open to: Fully Booked
Learn how hydrogen can transform the UK’s energy market, understand the innovation required to make the vision a reality, and meet key players within the industry.
Reduction of carbon emissions to the atmosphere is critical to avoid increased global temperatures and the resulting effects of climate change. The use of hydrogen has been identified as one of the potential pathways for decarbonisation. While the opportunities are numerous, there are technical and logistical challenges to overcome.
If you think hydrogen may hold opportunities for your company and want to learn more, or if you have a technology, service or innovation which you think is applicable to hydrogen, come along and listen to speakers from across the industry sharing insights into how the hydrogen economy could be developed in the UK. There will also be an opportunity for one-to-one discussions with speakers following the event.
Please note that due to high demand places are restricted to one place per company.
Free of charge
