SHFCA Annual Conference 2019

2 October 2019. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, 161 Springfield Rd, Aberdeen AB15 7AQ

The 11th annual SHFCA conference takes place in Aberdeen on Wednesday 2nd October 2019. This will highlight the substantial progress and learning being made in Scotland with the deployment of hydrogen and fuel cells as key components of an integrated low carbon and zero emission system. Speakers will provide updates on use of hydrogen and fuel cells to enable more renewable energy to be captured and used effectively, coupling energy with transport infrastructure and tackling ‘hard to treat’ areas such as heat, freight, and industry.

Our SHFCA 2019 conference will share best practice with hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, in the context of enabling the transition to low carbon energy systems and delivering net zero targets. During this event we will:

  • Showcase Scottish innovation with deployment of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies

  • Highlight the importance of cross-sector partnership working and international collaboration

  • Inform delegates of the key trends across our industry, linked to market growth and opportunities

  • Identify best practice and approaches to support climate action and delivery of net zero targets

Exemplar projects and related activities are building up key skills and expertise in Scotland, and establishing important links between the partner regions of Europe and internationally. Case studies will show how hydrogen and fuel cells can maximise the benefits of local renewables, adding value and positive economic impact, as well as developing valuable expertise and skills.

Our 11th SHFCA Annual Conference programme brings together SHFCA members and invited expert speakers from Scotland, UK, Europe, and North America. SHFCA 2019 will identify the opportunities for growth using hydrogen and fuel cells to enable the transition to a low carbon energy system, and deliver the key ambition of net zero emissions for Scotland by 2045.

The SHFCA 2019 conference will be preceded on Tuesday 1st October 2019 by our evening reception and conference dinner. SHFCA 2019 will be central to a series of Aberdeen Hydrogen Festival events taking place during the week.
