Highway to hydrogen, stages of grief, and calls for Cresswell’s head
Play • 35 min

EVOL is on the highway to hydrogen this week with news that the Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group is looking to build fuelling stations across the north of Scotland. It’s an ambitious plan with a lot of enthusiasm behind it, but does it have the wheels? 

Mark then regales us with tales of woe from companies bearing the brunt of governments decision to pull the plug on support for oil and gas exports. The team questions whether it could prompt firms to up sticks, depriving the UK of much needed jobs and cash. 

Finally, special guest Jeremy Cresswell, Energy Voice emeritus editor, discusses OPITO’s decision to launch an energy transition team, and how, after proposing a similar idea, there were calls for him to be introduced to a P45. 


The future of upstream oil and gas development in the North Sea is no longer clear. 

The policy of maximising economic recovery has now been counterbalanced by the UK Government’s 2050 net zero target. But while renewables account for a rapidly growing slice of the energy mix, oil and gas demand continues to grow, on the back of the post-Covid economic boom.

On September 6, Energy Voice will host Future North Sea 2021, a virtual conference that will help you understand the challenges, and answer the questions raised by this tension between energy provision and climate action.

Bringing together experts from across the sector, Future North Sea 2021 will showcase three sessions focusing on Net-Zero Production, Decommissioning, and M&A, all designed to provide your business with the innovative solutions, strategies and products required to thrive in the North Sea of the future.

Energy Voice, in association with Deloitte, Fasken and Costain, is also delighted to present a virtual event series that digs deeper into the prospects for hydrogen in order to separate the hard facts from the hype.
