The Hydrogen Revolution is here

It is time to take a fresh look at one of the fastest growing clean energy markets.  With increased Government support for development and industry buy-in creating opportunities, Hydrogen is now seen by many as the fuel of the future.

Key developments in the use of renewable energy to produce hydrogen, and more effective Carbon Capture, Utilisation & Storage (CCUS) facilities, could ensure that blue and green hydrogen become more cost effective as well as being sustainable.

To make this step-change there is a wealth of industry and collaborative opportunities. The demand is NOW for innovative and forward-thinking engineers, manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers to lead the way on a potentially global scale.

Come and join CeeD, Opportunity Cromarty Firth’s hydrogen working group and others as we explain the fundamentals of the hydrogen economy as well as offering tangible directions for opportunities across the supply chain.

Date: 18th May’21 Time: 10am to 11:30am Virtual platform:  Zoom
