ACE insight webinar: Building a Scottish hydrogen economy
20 April @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Scottish Government have committed to making hydrogen a key element of Scotland’s decarbonisation plans. The recently published hydrogen policy statement included a target of generating 5GW of renewable and low carbon hydrogen in Scotland by 2030.
In 2020 the Scottish Government, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, and Scottish Enterprise, commissioned Arup to carry out a hydrogen assessment, contributing to the evidence base to inform policies in this area. The assessment investigated how and where hydrogen might fit within the evolving energy system technically, geographically and economically. This work identified a crucial role for hydrogen in helping Scotland to decarbonise, and capitalise on the opportunity presented.
Clare Lavelle will present on the role of hydrogen in realising a secure, flexible, cost effective and low carbon energy network, which supports a green economic recovery. She will explain how Arup’s assessment identified the opportunities for Scotland to play a key role in a critical growing global market.
This webinar will take place on Tuesday 20 April from 12pm to 1pm.
