Establishing at least one low-carbon cluster by 2030, and the world’s first net-zero carbon industrial cluster by 2040 is a key mission in the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy, and an important step towards achieving “net zero” carbon emissions by 2050.
HyNet is ready to meet these goals and create a low-carbon exemplar cluster which can act as a UK model for clean growth. It is centred in the North West, a centre for UK Chemical engineering expertise and supported by companies and individuals determined to find themselves at the cutting edge of low carbon energy technologies.
Andy Brown, Engineering Director, Progressive Energy
With over 25 years in the Electricity Supply Industry (coal, nuclear and gas turbine), Andy joined Progressive Energy as their Engineering Director in 1997, to develop 'clean' options for power generation. This required expertise in gasification, gas processing, CO2 capture and storage and hydrogen combustion.
Whilst Chartered as a Mechanical Engineer, IChemE has recognised Andy's contribution by making him an Associate Fellow. Andy continues to support the Institutions activities, most recently by organising and editing the series on hydrogen in The Chemical Engineer magazine. Andy is currently supporting the various engineering aspects of the HyNet North West project.
