Hydrogen in Construction – Constructing Excellence Roundtable.
**This is an invitation only event**
Skanska UK in collaboration with BAM Nuttall and the Building Research Establishment (BRE) are leading the Red Diesel Replacement Phase 1 projects funded by the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The programme aims to explore and develop low-carbon alternatives to red diesel for construction.
This roundtable will provide an opportunity to find out more about the Phase 1 projects and share your views on how you could see Hydrogen being implemented in the construction sector. We will be seeking your views on how you could see benefits for your projects, what conditions would need to be in place to convince you to use the low carbon alternatives and any limitations there might be.
“Greener, because the requirements of the net zero commitment will be considered in every stage of the project life cycle and underpin decisions on the technical solutions chosen to achieve the required outcomes”. National Infrastructure Strategy
- Hydrogen is central to reaching net zero emissions because it can abate 80 gigatons of CO2 by 2050
- Hydrogen’s full potential can only be realized if action is taken across three fronts to: stimulate demand, enable access through infrastructure, and create scale to bring down costs and close the economic gap of hydrogen decarbonization solutions versus conventional alternatives.
- The world needs rapid emissions reductions and clean hydrogen has a crucial role to play, particularly in hard-to-abate sectors.
- Hydrogen can play a fundamental role in enabling countries and industries to meet their net-zero emission targets by 2050. While not in itself the solution to abate all emissions across sectors, hydrogen uniquely complements and enables other decarbonization pathways such as direct electrification, energy efficiency measures, and biomass-based fuels.
