About the event

With hydrogen playing a crucial role in achieving Net Zero, these sessions will provide valuable insights into its potential impacts, unpack common misconceptions and provide a forum for knowledge sharing. More importantly, the focus is on creating a ‘marketplace’ for hydrogen by connecting end users to the solution providers.

Who should attend?

Spanning academia, local authorities, innovators and industry, each session offers a unique perspective on the journey towards adopting hydrogen, including the challenges and opportunities it presents. While sessions are grouped by stakeholder groups, all are welcome to attend and can benefit from the discussions. You can find the details on each webinar below.

The webinars will also be utilised to receive live feedback to inform our future programs to support UK businesses and stakeholders.


20 May – UK Hydrogen landscape: How hydrogen can unlock a greener future (14:00 – 15:00)

The first webinar will give an overview of the key enablers of hydrogen as well as demystify important topics within the hydrogen sector. Speakers from trade bodies representing hydrogen, industry, academia and local authorities will feature and be part of the Q&A panel discussion.

The following will be discussed:

  • Why we need to act now to meet Net Zero deadlines
  • Where the UK stands on the global race to Net Zero and why it’s at the forefront of delivering hydrogen innovation for decarbonisation
  • What issues are facing hard-to-abate industries like transport and industry i.e. legislation
  • What can hydrogen unlock for these sectors

20 June – Local Authorities Working Towards Hydrogen (10:00 – 11:00)

The second webinar in the myth-busting series will spotlight the experiences of local authorities in adopting hydrogen to address local net zero challenges.

The aim is to encourage the adoption and diffusion of hydrogen innovation among local authorities, whilst providing a forum for collaboration.

The session will look to unpack how local authorities can drive change in their respective areas and move towards Net Zero. Local authorities that have deployed hydrogen or are continuing to adopt and accelerate hydrogen will share their experiences to facilitate knowledge exchange across the UK.

16 July – Hydrogen Innovation in Industry (10:00 – 11:00)

The third webinar in the myth-busting series will focus on business innovation and the role of hydrogen in supporting industrial decarbonisation efforts.

Various innovations happening across industry will be explored to facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration between various stakeholders across regions.

We will discuss challenges and enablers of hydrogen and demystify some of the myths around hydrogen safety.
