Hydrogen Economy

The Hydrogen Economy Innovation Network (formerly SIG) is creating a non-competitive advisory group to pool knowledge from existing hydrogen communities to validate views on the current challenges to enabling low-carbon hydrogen production at scale and cost.

The Hydrogen Economy Innovation Network is working with the community to find innovative solutions and to share innovative approaches across regions, clusters and communities to help ‘speed up innovation’.

Following initial work with key stakeholders to validate challenges and local issues, the Network plans to identify case studies demonstrating the hydrogen economy in practice and share knowledge on known solutions followed by an Innovation Exchange programme to find innovative solutions across industries and sectors.
