Hydrogen South West facilitates collaborative partnerships among businesses and communities to advance hydrogen infrastructure and technology. Key participants include prominent brands like easyJet, Airbus, and EDF, alongside industry leaders such as GKN, Costain, Wsp, Bristol Port, Bristol Airport, Wales and West Utilities, and Wessex Water. This diverse coalition of expertise provides a significant opportunity to expedite the UK’s shift to alternative power sources on a large scale. Through decarbonising transportation, commerce, and energy sectors, the initiative aims to ensure the sustainability of key industries, foster eco-friendly growth, and enhance regional skillsets—all while contributing meaningfully to the UK’s net zero 2050 goal. Originating in the South West, the project aspires to leverage acquired knowledge and expertise to guide nationwide decarbonisation efforts, demonstrating a British-led transformation towards a greener future.
