Building Innovative Green Hydrogen Systems in Isolated Territories
About the Project
BIG HIT will create a hydrogen territory in the Orkney Islands of Scotland by implementing a fully integrated model of hydrogen production, storage, transportation and utilisation for heat, power and mobility.
News and Events
The forecast for the global average surface temperature for the five-year period to 2023 is predicted to be near or above 1.0 °C above pre-industrial levels, says the UK Met Office. If the observations for the next five years track the forecast that would make the decade from 2014 to 2023 the warmest run of years since records began. Averaged over the five-year period 2019-2023, forecast patterns suggest enhanced warming is likely over much of the globe, especially over land and at high northern latitudes, particularly the Arctic region. The effects of climate change are not limited to surface temperature. Warming of the climate system is seen across a range of climate indicators that build a picture of global changes occurring across the land, atmosphere, oceans and ice.
During 2019 Met Office climate scientists expect to see one of the largest rises in atmospheric carbon-dioxide concentration in 62 years of measurements. This Met Office CO₂ forecast is based on a combination of factors including rising anthropogenic emissions and a relative reduction in the uptake of carbon-dioxide by ecosystems due to tropical climate variability.
The Just Transition Commission will look at how to maximise the social and economic opportunities for Scotland offered by moving to a carbon neutral economy. It will be chaired by Professor Jim Skea, who is also the Co-Chair of Working Group III (Mitigation) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
The Scottish Government is committed to growing a low-carbon, inclusive economy. Scotland’s Economic Strategy sets out the ambition to create a more cohesive and resilient economy that improves the opportunities, life chances, and wellbeing of every citizen in our country, and the Climate Change Bill commits Scotland to being carbon-neutral by 2050.
The International School on Progress in Hydrogen Safety will be hosted by Hydrogen Safety Engineering and Research (HySAFER), Ulster University. The main focus of the International School “Progress in Hydrogen Safety” is to provide high quality state-of-the-art presentations, including the HYLANTIC project results, in hydrogen safety for professionals, researchers and students. In addition, special attention will be paid to networking both formally, following technical sessions and informally through the social events. The school aims at providing excellent training in hydrogen safety for the participants and facilitating the stronger ties between industry and academia.
The 15th International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Conference will look at all aspects of the commercialisation of the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell sector with presentations from policy makers , companies operating in this sector and also users of the technology.
Europe’s largest hydrogen, fuel cells and battery exhibition. The Group Exhibit in Hall 27 is part of HANNOVER MESSE, the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology.
All-Energy’s mission is to enable the UK renewable energy community to interact, conduct business, network and learn, whether face-to-face or online. Annually in Scotland All-Energy connects 300+ energy suppliers, developers, investors, technology developers and policy makers with 7,000+ energy industry buyers.
The 8th World Hydrogen Technologies Convention is being held in Tokyo, Japan. WHTC 2019 provides a forum for the scientific, industrial, governmental and general audiences from all over the world to gather together and present their most recent research findings, and to offer a stimulating atmosphere to discuss and exchange ideas on frontier research topics and future possibilities in hydrogen energy technologies.
The 14th edition of EUSEW will take place from Monday 17th to Friday 21st June 2019, with the policy conference running from Tuesday 18th to Thursday 20th June in Brussels. EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the biggest event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. It is made up of a 3-day policy conference offering various networking opportunities, an EU Sustainable Energy Awards competition with a public vote for the citizens' award and local events, Energy Days, held across Europe throughout the months of May and June.
Energy Storage and Connected Systems will return to London in September 2019.
'ESCS' will once again bring together key industry figures to focus on the future of energy storage in the UK; covering practical examples of storage that are currently being deployed and how they integrate into a broader network of connected systems including smart buildings, grids and electric vehicle infrastructure.
A kaleidoscopic mix of fresh insights, challenging ideas and lively activities that build links between science and all the other aspects of human affairs, from art and music, to history and philosophy.
