On Monday 2 July, HyNet was launched to an audience of MP, Peers, civil servants, industry and clean energy specialists.

Sponsored by Yasmin Qureshi MP for Bolton South East, over 80 people came along to hear about the project from Cadent’s CEO, keynote speaker, James Heappey MP along with a recorded video of support from Steve Rotheram, Mayor of the Liverpool City Region. It was the right decision to move the date of the event to avoid a clash with the football!

Following the lively regional launch in May, it was a great opportunity to talk to a wider audience about HyNet and move another step closer to making this vision a reality for the North West.

“A hugely exciting project which reflects a need to be more ambitious in seeking to prove low carbon technology at scale. It makes the CCUS argument much more compelling by presenting it in a commercial context, and provides an export opportunity for skills and knowledge that could be really valuable to the UK.”
