Event description
Join us as we discuss planning issues around hydrogen and its role in cutting emissions in order to achieve net zero

About this event

Hydrogen projects are currently being developed across the UK, with several production and refuelling projects in the Sussex area alone.

Hydrogen is set to play a key role in the energy transition over this decade, as organisations cut their carbon emissions in order to reach net zero. However, for planning departments, hydrogen is somewhat of an unknown entity, raising concerns around safety, visual impact, etc.

What are the implications for planners dealing with these developments?

Hydrogen Sussex is hosting this webinar to help you prepare. Expert speakers will take you through the types of hydrogen developments, safety, implications of site selection, traffic impacts and more.

This workshop is aimed at local authority planners and councillors, and will also be relevant for developers.


• Why planners need to know about hydrogen: the basics of the technology, hydrogen's potential uses and the role it will play in achieving Net Zero Abigail Dombey, Chair, Hydrogen Sussex

• What is a hydrogen development? John Cummings, H2Evolution, working with Shoreham Port on a hydrogen production facility

• Safety issues Health & Safety Executive

• Case study: taking a hydrogen development through planning Cllr Dan Watkins, Canterbury Council

Hydrogen Sussex brings together key players across the public and private sectors to promote hydrogen technology, support local supply chains, and to make Sussex a leader in a clean hydrogen economy.

Hydrogen Sussex is committed to raising awareness and developing opportunities for clean hydrogen as a key energy vector in the transition to net zero carbon emissions.
