Event aimed at fuelling north west hydrogen revolution taking place

By on April 5, 2019

Manchester law firm Clarke Willmott LLP is partnering an event hosted by the Bessemer Society looking at how the North West can lead the hydrogen revolution in Europe.

The prestigious dinner with guest speakers at Liverpool Town Hall on April 10 will look at the drivers for demand for hydrogen production and how that demand will be met.

Hydrogen is believed to have the potential to play a pivotal role in the future to store and transport energy from wind, solar and other renewable sources.

John Flint, partner and head of Clarke Willmott’s Manchester commercial litigation team, said: “We are very happy to continue our partnership with the Bessemer Society.

“We share their enthusiasm for hydrogen innovation as well as the entrepreneurial creativity they hope to encourage. Such a prestigious event is also recognition that the North West is seen as a key growth hub for the hydrogen sector in the UK.”

Speakers at the event include: Simon Fairman from Cadent Gas; Dr Tony Smith from Peel Environmental; Mike Muldoon from Alstom Transport and Dr Amanda Lyne from ULEMCo Ltd.

The Bessemer Society is an organisation dedicated to sharing ideas on technological innovation in science and technology. It is named after Sir Henry Bessemer who revolutionised the steel making process with the invention which carries his name.

Tickets for the dinner cost £75 or £35 for Bessemer Society Members. Visit: www.bessemer-society.co.uk/events.
