Following the December 2023 publication of the Hydrogen Production Roadmap, we are delighted to convene this cross-sector panel discussion exploring the challenges and opportunities facing government and the private sector as the hydrogen production landscape evolves over the next decade.

By joining us live on the day, you will: 

  • Explore the progress made since the UK Hydrogen Strategy was published in 2021 and how the roadmap is being implemented
  • Debate the role of cross-sector collaboration in meeting targets on the road to net zero in the UK
  • Pose your questions directly to the panel during a live audience Q&A
