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 our plans for driving the way towards a net zero future for the region and the UK.

How to use this consultation hub

Thank you for taking the time to explore our proposals to deliver the Phase 1 of HyNet North West – the UK’s first hydrogen network.

This consultation hub is designed to provide you with all the information you need about the project, which you can navigate to in the website below.

Our recent consultation on the first part of HyNet, the CO2 pipeline, has now ended, but you can still use this site to find out more about the project, and to give us your thoughts on creating a net zero future, carbon capture and hydrogen power. We will use this site to host future consultations on HyNet, so make sure you sign up for updates below.

In the meantime, please watch our video to find out more about HyNet North West!
