“The potential for Scotland to become a green hydrogen exporter.”

Join us in Edinburgh to hear more about Scotland’s position as a potential exporter of Hydrogen to continental Europe.

With networking reception afterwards.


Scotland, has vast onshore and offshore renewable resources, and the ambition to become a net exporter of green energy by 2045.

The Scottish government funded Hydrogen Backbone Link (HBL) project is a key early enabler for this, providing cost-effective transportation to market for Scottish hydrogen producers and supporting the transition to a low-carbon energy system.

Most recently, the Net Zero Technology Centre (NZTC) has been awarded £200,000 from Scottish Government to advance critical research to demonstrate the feasibility and economic opportunity of exporting hydrogen from Scotland to Germany and solidify the case for infrastructure investment.


Our speakers, will address:

How can green hydrogen be exported from Scotland?

Martyn Tulloch NZTC Director of Energy Transition will offer an overview of the NZTC work on Energy Hubs, H2 Backbone & Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC)

The potential for Shetland, Orkney & Western Isles to become a green H2 powerhouse

Gunther Newcombe Energy Transition Advisor NewByrne Consultants will share progress on the  with the repiurposing of oil & gas infrastructure

How the Scottish Government is working to enable green hydrogen to become an export opportunity.

Dr Alexandra Stein Scottish Government European Hydrogen Envoy
