Industry associations and policy shaping

As well as advising project developers and designing hydrogen and CCS systems, we work with industry groups to promote and advance the decarbonisation of the UK through hydrogen. We also advise Government on the technical considerations of the transition to a hydrogen economy.

Industry groups
