This SHFCA Breakfast Briefing event will set out current thinking on the role for Green and Blue Hydrogen in meeting Scotland’s ambitions for rapid decarbonisation of the energy system and delivering Net Zero emissions by 2045. The speaker presentations will be followed by a question & answer session. There will also be opportunities to meet the speakers before and after the event during networking.
The recent Scottish Government Energy Strategy ‘The Future of Energy in Scotland’ has identified the importance of using a whole energy system approach to support delivery of ambitious targets for energy efficiency, increased renewable energy uptake, and carbon reduction.
The programme presents progress being made both by academia and industry to support these key policy ambitions, with topics ranging from hydrogen storage at large scale to innovative conversions using hydrogen as decarbonised energy and as a feedstock.
This joint meeting has been organised by SHFCA and the Energy Technology Partnership with sessions featuring leading speakers who will stimulate discussion and debate.
Our second SHFCA member meeting of 2019 will be a ‘Breakfast Briefing’ on the topic of Low Carbon Transport, hosted by Gillespie Macandrew in Edinburgh. This meeting will provide updates on work being carried out to develop policy and implement the practical changes to reduce the transport emissions in Scotland which have adverse effects on both climate and local air quality. This event is for SHFCA members and invited guests. To register your interest please contact email@example.com
Our first SHFCA workshop of 2019 is for members only, and will help shape priorities and develop the activities of our Association. The morning session will include selected updates on key policy and related topics, and the afternoon session will update you on SHFCA finances, governance and structure. There will also be an opportunity for you to provide input and comment about SHFCA priorities, and how we can best meet the needs of all members as the hydrogen & fuel cell sector continues to grow and develop.
Our 2018 Scottish Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Conference takes place in Dundee, one of Scotland’s most vibrant cities. This one day conference will showcase hydrogen and fuel cell applications and their deployment as efficient and integrated low emission energy systems.
This SHFCA member Breakfast Briefing will provide key insights and updates on the opportunities for decarbonising Scotland's Energy System with Hydrogen, and the opportunity to put your questions to the speakers during the panel discussion session.
This event will give information and advice about installing your own ultra- efficient ‘mini power station’ at your premises, producing electricity and heat without giving off harmful NOx or particulates. The BlueGen fuel cell micro-CHP is suitable for many situations, generating electricity and heat at the point of use to save on energy bills and help reduce carbon emissions through greater overall efficiency.
The Energy Technology Partnership (ETP) in conjunction with the Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (SHFCA) are hosting the 7th Annual Energy Storage meeting on Wednesday 18th April 2018. This meeting will bring together a selection of speakers from Scottish industry and academia who will highlight the progress being made in Scotland’s drive towards meeting the ambitious targets of the Scottish Energy Strategy.
SHFCA is hosting the second regional workshop of the FCH2 JU's Regions & Cities initiative on Tuesday 10th April in Edinburgh. This event is being delivered as part of the ‘Cities & Regions’ project for this FCH-JU supported initiative. This workshop will share best practices in FCH project development, provide updates from Scottish example case studies, identify the early business opportunities, and show the way forward for European cities and regions to implement FCH projects.
Scotland's first Energy Strategy was released on 20th December 2017, and sets out the Scottish Government’s vision for the future energy system in Scotland. This new Strategy will be used extensively during this SHFCA member event, with a focus on actions required to deliver the Hydrogen Scenario. This meeting will help to identify and prioritise our SHFCA activities for 2018 and beyond.
The afternoon sessions will include the annual update on SHFCA finances, governance and activities. There will also be an opportunity for you to provide input and comment about SHFCA priorities and any other relevant topics.
This event is open to all SHFCA members.
