Friday 17 May 2024, 12-4pm at British Geological Survey, Keyworth, Nottinghamshire

Last few tickets remain!

Low Carbon Hydrogen is expected to play a major role over the next 20-30 years in reducing the UK’s CO₂ emissions by replacing natural gas, helping the UK and the East Midlands on its journey towards net zero by 2050. As well as being used by heavy industry, transport and aviation to replace fossil fuels, hydrogen will support the decarbonisation of the electricity network. Hydrogen can be produced from renewable energy at times of excess supply, stored in large quantities and then converted back to electricity through gas-fired power stations at times of peak electricity consumption. 

Join this event to find out about the potential for geological storage of hydrogen in the East Midlands’ subsurface and why it’s so vital for the region to grow its hydrogen economy and allow power generation, industry and heavy transport to decarbonise. Hear from key industrial stakeholders who understand that hydrogen storage will be key to the survival or growth of their businesses in the East Midlands.
