With hydrogen predicted to be worth up to £18 billion for the UK economy by 2035, many companies are exploring how they can be part of an H2 future.
As the original energy transition organisation, AREG is working on behalf of our 160 member companies to champion the north east so that businesses are well placed to seize new opportunities for both green and blue hydrogen.
In our hydrogen webinar, we were pleased to invite SGN and Wood to discuss current and future hydrogen projects as well as business opportunities for the supply chain in the north east and the wider UK context.
The full recording for this webinar is now available here and below:
