The North West Hydrogen Alliance (NWHA) has announced a batch of new members following the success of Hydrogen Week 2024.
With the University of Manchester and consulting firms Tetra Tech and Net Zero Energy Systems confirmed as the latest hydrogen producers to join the NWHA, the membership now sits at over 40 members.
The news comes on the back of the UK’s second Hydrogen Week (26 Feb – 3 March) – a week-long initiative spearheaded by the NWHA, which saw thousands of individuals and companies celebrate and promote the role of hydrogen in reaching net zero.
The hydrogen clusters across the UK came together in a webinar hosted by the NWHA to discuss ongoing plans for leveraging the hydrogen opportunity with a clear message that regions need to collaborate to deliver a world-leading hydrogen economy in the UK.
Dave Richardson, interim chair of the NWHA and decarbonisation solutions director at Costain, said: Once again it’s been amazing to see the UK come together to celebrate hydrogen. We’re proud to have launched the initiative last year and 2024 has been even bigger and better.
"One of the clear messages was that the UK needs to unite and collaborate if we are to really capitalise on the hydrogen opportunity. That’s one of the things that the NWHA helps to foster, and we’re really pleased to be welcoming three new members to the fold. Their breadth of experience and knowledge will really add to our already strong membership.”
The University of Manchester boasts a dynamic team of over 70 academics dedicated to pioneering research in various hydrogen-related fields. This extensive research encompasses a broad range of topics such as hydrogen production, purification, storage, transportation and utilisation.
Dr. Lin Ma, lecturer, and Dr Vincenzo Spallina, reader (Associate Professors) at The University of Manchester, said: “The University of Manchester is actively involved in hydrogen-related research. The research areas include various aspects of Hydrogen Production and Delivery, Hydrogen Storage and a number of cross-cutting topics including policy and social aspects.
"By joining the Alliance, academics and researchers of the University of Manchester will have a focused platform for hydrogen-related contacts, research and business opportunities. They will be able to translate their research results to the benefit of North West industries and communities.”
