On 22 September, 14:00-15:30, Midlands Engine will hold a webinar with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

The event will provide an update on the UK Government’s progress towards its target of 10GW of low carbon hydrogen capacity by 2030, as well as the policy frameworks being implemented to optimise the future distribution, storage and end-use technology opportunities for hydrogen.

The event will feature presentations on key H2 policy focus areas by BEIS civil servants including the H2 Business Model, H2 Transport and Storage Framework and H2 Blending. There will also be an opportunity for questions at the end.

It is recommended UK businesses, universities, local authorities and other parties with an interest in hydrogen attend the event.
