Welcome to the HyNet North West Hub
HyNet North West is a ground-breaking clean energy project that will unlock a low carbon future for the North West and North Wales. It will place the region at the forefront of the UK’s journey to net zero and help to decarbonise many sectors of the economy from 2025 onwards. The project will produce clean hydrogen to replace the fossil fuels we use today for industry, transport and homes. HyNet will also capture and store carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions produced by energy intensive industries.

Here you can find out more about this exciting project and give us your feedback, including our current proposals on the first step of the scheme - the carbon dioxide pipeline which will take CO₂ emissions from existing industries to be stored in existing depleted gas reservoirs in Liverpool Bay.
