Environment and climate change

Hydrogen is set to play a crucial role in achieving the UK’s 2050 decarbonisation commitments, as a clean energy source across power, heat and transport. We were delighted to invite you to an expert cross-sector panel discussion, as we explore the next steps in delivering on this potential.

Join us online for your opportunity to:

  • Learn more about BEIS’s plans to implement the UK Hydrogen Strategy, and the role of hydrogen in strengthening our national Energy Security
  • Build your understanding of the role organisations across the sectors can play in working together to build an effective UK hydrogen ecosystem

Speakers at the Event

Stef Murphy’s civil service career has largely centered on energy policy, where she has led teams working on new nuclear policy, nuclear security and resilience and oil and gas.  More recently she worked in strategy for energy and climate change and to coordinate BEIS’s work on EU Exit.  Alongside Paro Konar, Stef then became Director for Industrial Energy (IE) in BEIS, responsible for strategy, policy development and delivery on industrial energy and decarbonisation issues. IE has since evolved into two new directorates, and Stef is now Director of Hydrogen and Industrial Carbon Capture, jointly with Paro, leading the development of the low carbon hydrogen economy and industrial carbon capture − key technologies for industry’s sustainable growth.  

Dr Angie Needle is Cadent’s Director of Strategy, the Vice President of Hydrogen UK and a key figure in the nascent hydrogen industry. In her current role for Cadent Angie is responsible for driving the UK’s largest gas distribution network towards a net zero future, spearheading all things hydrogen and positioning Cadent as a leading voice in the sector.

Prior to joining Cadent in 2019, Angie held a number of senior roles at Centrica and Anglian Water, developing energy and customer services propositions and supporting both organisations on their moves towards cleaner energy, reduced carbon emissions and more sustainable business models.

Alongside her work for Cadent and Hydrogen UK, Angie is a leading proponent for diversity in the utilities sector, being a co-founder of the Women’s Utilities Network.
