The HyDEX programme has been designed to foster the creation of a new hydrogen industrial economy in the Midlands. Working with researchers, industry and the public sector the £5m Research England funded programme will accelerate innovation, build markets and support the development of skills. The three-year programme, led by Keele University, will create a platform in which the eight university partners associated with the Midlands-based Energy Research Accelerator, ERA, will make available their hydrogen facilities, research capability and expertise, and large-scale hydrogen demonstrators that they have developed. We will work with businesses, particularly in the transport and heating sectors, to allow them to accelerate the development of new hydrogen products, transition from declining industrial sectors, train and re-skill, demonstrate the viability of new products, and – by working with local government and local authorities – support the creation of a market for low-carbon hydrogen solutions as part of the net zero transition. Moreover, the ERA universities will use their international connections to link businesses with growing international markets in countries such as China, Australia and South Korea to build commercial opportunities that reach beyond the Midlands and the UK.
