What do we mean by a hydrogen future? What would the transition look like? These questions and more will be discussed at the next Energy Conversation which is organised by the Centre for Energy Policy (CEP), and chaired by Alf Young.
This CEP Energy Conversation event is on the topic of How feasible and desirable is a transition to a hydrogen future? As we make steady progress towards decarbonising our economy, the CEP have chosen to focus their next Energy Conversation on hydrogen. This features strongly in both the UK's Clean Growth Strategy and the Scottish Energy Strategy, with a high-hydrogen scenario as a possible pathway to a dramatically decarbonised energy system.
The conversationalists include: David Joffe, UK Committee on Climate Change; Graeme Sweeney, Zero Emissions Platform and Visiting Professor at the Centre for Energy Policy, University of Strathclyde; and Karen Turner, Director of the Centre for Energy Policy, University of Strathclyde. The event will run from 18:00pm - 19:30, and will be followed by a drinks reception.
Both the UK and Scottish Governments have signalled that hydrogen is likely to play a key role in the decarbonisation of our economy, with the UK Clean Growth Strategy and Scottish Energy Strategy each presenting a high-hydrogen scenario as one possible pathway for achieving a dramatically decarbonised energy system. There are demonstrator projects across the UK, from Orkney to Keele, trialling a range of hydrogen applications from using hydrogen fuel cells to power ferries, to providing hydrogen as a substitute fuel for natural gas for domestic heating and cooking.
Join in at this Energy Conversation event to explore what we mean by a hydrogen future and what the implications of such a transition might be.
This event is free to attend, but prior registration is required.
