Unlocking the potential of ‘green’ gas – 16 May Leeds – Register interest

Registration is now open for a free KTN event “Unlocking the potential of ‘green’ gas taking place on the 16th May in Leeds. This event will bring together industry experts, innovators, academics and policymakers to explore how we can unlock the potential of low carbon gas alternatives (hydrogen, biogas, bio syngas) to fossil fuels in energy generation, transport and as a feedstock for a chemical process. 

But how far away are these opportunities? Will the energy/transport/chemicals sectors compete for the finite supply of these gases or are there symbiotic opportunities? What innovation and policy changes are needed to ensure this potential is realised?

The event will be an opportunity to;

  • hear about regional activities and strategies for clean growth in the UK.
  • hear from leading industry experts about the challenges they face and the potential of low carbon gases across the different market areas: energy (heat and power); transport fuels; and as a chemical feedstock.
  • contribute to a panel discussion on what policy and regulatory changes are needed to realise this opportunity.
  • hear from BEIS, Innovate UK and the National Contact Points for European Funding about current funding opportunities where businesses can leverage support in this area.
