About this event

ETZ CCUS & Blue Hydrogen Masterclass
Monday 27 June 2022
Marcliffe Hotel & Spa, Aberdeen
09:00 - 16:00

Hydrogen is widely viewed as a key part of the energy transition with Scotland having the potential to be a world leader in hydrogen production. Already established as a world leader in wind energy and a large-scale energy exporter for electricity, oil and gas; its vast energy resource, supply chain expertise, skilled workforce, existing infrastructure and geographical advantages, puts Scotland in pole position to produce hydrogen at scale. 

ETZ Ltd has a clear ambition to reposition the North East of Scotland as a globally recognised integrated energy cluster focussed on the delivery of net zero. 

ETZ Ltd, in partnership with NECCUS and SHFCA, are hosting two masterclasses looking at CCUS & Hydrogen. The first will discuss CCUS and associated opportunities such as blue hydrogen; the second will look at green hydrogen and hydrogen end use applications. 

- Monday 27th June – ETZ CCUS & Blue Hydrogen Masterclass  
- Wednesday 17th August – ETZ Green Hydrogen & End Use Applications Masterclass 

We invite the North East Scotland supply chain to join us, as we hear more on the major hydrogen & CCUS developments in Scotland, UK and overseas. We will discuss the commercial and regulatory challenges required to be overcome to deliver these projects as well as supply chain opportunities in the short, medium and long term. 

There will also be an opportunity for one-to-one discussions with speakers during the event.
