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 Scottish Government has set out their vision for Scotland's electricity and gas networks to 2030. The Electricity and Gas Networks Vision builds on Scotland's Energy Strategy, which was published in December 2017.
The Networks Vision considers how Scotland's electricity and gas network infrastructure will continue to support the energy transition, the crucial role that Scotland's electricity and gas networks will play in the energy transition currently underway.
This new Networks Vision reinforces the key role that hydrogen could play in connecting and helping decarbonise our heat, industrial and transport systems. Hydrogen also has the potential to transform our urban, rural and island economies, and support the expansion of renewable energy.
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.
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.

The 2019 Programme Review Days will take place on Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 November 2019 in Brussels, ahead of the FCH JU Stakeholder Forum, which takes place on Thursday 21 November. The Programme Review Days, organised annually, aim to provide an overview on the progress of the FCH JU funded projects. It constitutes an excellent visibility platform for the projects and the technological developments achieved in the sector, and provides networking opportunities for the participants.
The 2019 edition of the Stakeholder Forum will take place on Thursday 21 November 2018 in Brussels. Since its first edition of 2008, the Stakeholder forum has brought together the European Fuel Cell and Hydrogen community. More than 10 years later, it continues to create a unique environment for making new connections or renewing old ones and serves as a forum to discuss the role of fuel cells and hydrogen in the energy and transport sectors and beyond. Our goal is to welcome speakers who inspire and inform our guests with the best insights, experience and perspectives.
The 23rd World Hydrogen Energy Conference (WHEC-2020) will be a unique event of IAHE for all researchers, scientists, academics, engineers, technologists, policymakers, strategists, as well as professionals working in any aspects of hydrogen energy.
Like the past WHECs, WHEC2020 aims to bring all parties from all related sectors, ranging from academia to industry, together to have a distinct platform to really discuss challenges and opportunities and provide directions for future.
