Current± has been named editorial partner for Solar Media’s Green Hydrogen Summit UK and Ireland which is set to take place in London on 2-3 July.
In a brand-new event for our publisher, the Green Hydrogen Summit UK and Ireland will bring stakeholders from across the green hydrogen value chain together for an annual update on key developments in the market.
The introduction of the Summit comes at a time when the industry continues to move from strength to strength. At the end of 2023, the UK government confirmed it would back 11 green hydrogen production projects, set to deliver 125MW of new hydrogen for UK businesses.
As reported by Current±, the projects will also invest more than £400 million over the next three years in the UK’s green economy, as well as generating over 700 green jobs.
It is also worth noting that just days afterwards, the UK and Australian governments launched an AU$10 million (£5.3 million) joint funding programme to support the development of green hydrogen technologies. These announcements showcase the growing interest around the clean energy carrier with interest anticipated to grow in 2024 and the years beyond.
The Green Hydrogen Summit UK and Ireland brings together stakeholders from across the value chain to provide an opportunity to share knowledge and make new business connections in a bid to keep driving the sector forward.
