Event Details

Hydrogen is one of the most abundant elements, and it may be critical in providing a route to net zero. In this event, we explore the role of hydrogen in our net zero economy, looking at the barriers to its large-scale production, and if it has a role to play in decarbonising home heating or whether it should be reserved for hard-to-abate sectors.

Key speakers:

– The Rt Hon Lord Callanan, Minister for Climate Change and Corporate Responsibility (invited)
– Cllr Izzi Seccombe OBE, Leader, Local Government Association Conservative Group
– Andy Manning, Principle Economic Regulation Specialist, Citizens Advice
– Dr Angela Needle, Director of Strategy, Cadent Gas
– Patrick Hall, Senior Research Fellow, Bright Blue (Chair)

Key questions:

– What are consumer attitudes towards the role and responsibilities of individuals, government and business in achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions?
– How familiar are consumers with hydrogen-based solutions to decarbonisation?
– Should hydrogen-based solutions to decarbonisation be reserved for hard-to-abate sectors?
– How can the UK scale up the production of hydrogen?
– Should hydrogen heating in homes be encouraged, and if so, how can the UK foster greater uptake?
– What are the infrastructure and supply-side challenges to hydrogen heating in homes?
– What are the consumer barriers to hydrogen heating in homes?
