Course overview

As we move towards zero-carbon, deep electrification combined with new applications for hydrogen promise to transform the way we live, work, and do business. The energy transition will likely revolutionise the way we think about energy, heating, steel making, transport and energy storage; creating new infrastructure and matching supply chains where huge opportunities await.

The race is on for early entrants to the green steel market – don’t be left behind.

Who should attend?

  • Existing energy companies particularly those who are already part of the steel, automotive, construction and shipbuilding oil and gas supply chain and those looking to future-proof their capabilities.
  • The CCS clusters already familiar with hydrogen and well-placed to drive the regional industries  forward
  • Engineering companies, those involved in metallurgy and steel
  • Shipping, construction and automotive interests
  • Those companies seeking to enter the wider end to end steel value chain with its myriad opportunities in a market valued, in the billions dollars.

About the course

Steel making is cited a sector favourable to early implementation of a hydrogen economy. Hydrogen is a sector that is expected to grow exponentially across the globe in the coming years. For example, the UK recently set a target to produce five gigawatts of hydrogen by 2030, representing a 40-fold increase from the current situation. This ambition is replicated worldwide where national hydrogen strategies, often explicitly citing the need for green steel, appear on a weekly basis. The journey to a new, low emission energy system with a much greater role for hydrogen will be challenging and require much innovation. Early engagement with those developing low or zero-emissions steel projects will enable fast movers to reap the maximum from the opportunity presented.

The course aims to provide a practical guide to enable companies to make informed decisions and plans based on the real opportunities that are emerging as the global hydrogen and green steel economy develops. Delegates will be guided as to where early opportunities are most likely to lie, who is involved and how to get in front of them.
