“Hydrogen from HyNet will enable decarbonisation of hard-to-reach sectors, including heating of homes, fuelling of industry and flexible power generation”
Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of Liverpool City Region
HyNet is the UK’s leading industrial decarbonisation project.
We are unlocking a low carbon future across the north west of the UK – creating new roles, safeguarding existing jobs, growing a skills base and attracting investment into the region.
HyNet will reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emitted from across the region by a quarter starting in the mid-2020s.
We will do this by:
- Locking away the carbon dioxide emitted by heavy industry
- Providing locally-produced low carbon hydrogen to power for industry, transport and to heat for our homes and businesses.
By creating a source of locally-produced energy, HyNet will help the UK’s own energy security.
‘…a big step towards a green future.’
Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester
