Thanks to all our speakers and the 180 people who attended the Hydrogen Innovators and the Future summit at CEME on 13 June. The event brought together innovators and research institutions to explore how hydrogen can contribute to the UK economy, and the opportunities and challenges being created.

CEME is working with partners throughout the Thames Estuary area to develop a Hydrogen Innovation Centre as part of the hydrogen ecosystem being created within the region.

At CEME, we aim to make a difference to our world. We work to promote and support inclusive business growth and skills development for the future. We are prioritising working with businesses focused on net zero and innovations in energy use.

CEME already has an on-campus hydrogen refuelling system, and we will facilitate a hydrogen ecosystem within the region by working with partners, including Thames Freeport, Ikigai Capital, the Thames Estuary Growth Board, the University of Kent, MTC, UCL, Local London, Bosch and NOCN Group.

The Hydrogen Innovators and the Future summit comprised of keynotes and panel sessions on the Thames Estuary hydrogen ecosystem, innovators and the challenges they face and the potential contribution to net zero, renewable energy and the link to hydrogen, and the role of education and skills in future energy. Delegates also enjoyed exhibits and networking.
