HyNet – Delivering a blueprint for the UK hydrogen economy

Join us for an opportunity to hear how industry is working together to deliver a whole new, low carbon energy infrastructure in the North West.

HyNet is a large-scale clean hydrogen project, which will supply fuel for heat, power and transport to decarbonise the regional economy at low cost. This will not only set an energy blueprint for other regions but provide new jobs and a platform for export of new low carbon goods and services from the UK.

With major engineering work already underway, you are invited to come and hear how HyNet has brought together partners from industry, gas networks, academia, construction and local government.

HyNet is about making Net Zero a reality.
