Wrightbus will be “among the very best” showcasing benefits of hydrogen at both Labour and Conservative conferences
Leading bus manufacturer Wrightbus will be a key-player showcasing the capabilities of hydrogen and its part in the UK’s net zero ambitions as one of the company’s hydrogen buses will be at both the Conservative and Labour Party conferences.
Both Party Conferences will feature a ‘Hydrogen Zone’, with Wrightbus showcasing the impact it’s making, among some of the UK’s leading companies in the hydrogen sector.
The zone will showcase UK-made hydrogen technologies and projects across the country. As part of it, Wrightbus will be proudly showing its StreetDeck Hydroliner. The world’s first hydrogen double deck bus.
In recent months, as energy prices soar and with more focus on energy security, hydrogen’s potential as an energy source has been thrust into the spotlight with leading politicians from both parties voicing their backing of the clean energy alternative.
In recent days, Jacob Rees-Mogg, the newly appointed Secretary of State for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy, has said Britain’s energy system must be strengthened and diversified to protect homes and businesses.
Mr Rees-Mogg said this could be achieved by, “investing in renewable energy with vim and vigour, accelerating the deployment of wind, solar, and particularly exciting, hydrogen technologies.”
Joerg Hoffman, Chief Executive of Wrightbus, said: “We are immensely proud to be among some of the country’s leading companies showcasing the very best of the UK’s hydrogen industry. Our buses are world-leading and are helping to play an important part in the UK’s ambitions for decarbonisation.
“We are very much looking forward to hearing what both Labour and Conservative politicians have to say in the coming days with regards to the role hydrogen will play in strengthening and expanding the UK’s energy sector. Now more than ever before is the time to showcase the many benefits of hydrogen.
“The availability of sufficient hydrogen is a key for success and therefore we need politicians to support additional hydrogen production facilities in the UK - that is vital.”
Wrightbus will be featured in the Hydrogen Zone, alongside Sizewell C, Cadent, NGN, RWE, SGN, Worcester Bosch, Protium, Centrica, Glass Futures, Johnson Matthey Project Union, and UK H2Mobility.
The Labour Party conference is taking place in Liverpool, UK until Thursday (28 September), while the Conservative Party conference will head to Birmingham on 2-5 October.
