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
A new report released today by the UK Committee on Climate Change (CCC) gives the very clear message that Hydrogen is a credible option to help decarbonise the UK energy system, but also highlights this depends on early Government commitment and improved support to develop the UK’s industrial capability: The UK must now prepare for the key decisions on zero-carbon energy.
The report finds hydrogen could replace natural gas in parts of the energy system, where electrification is not feasible or is prohibitively expensive, for example in providing heat on colder winter days, industrial heat processes and back-up power generation. Hydrogen should be viewed as a credible option in the next stage of the UK’s energy transition, and the report offers a new impetus for early Government action.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) today released their Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC: http://www.ipcc.ch/report/sr15/ The IPCC is the leading world body for assessing the science related to climate change, its impacts and potential future risks, and possible response options.
This report contains many important messages about the steps which need to be taken to avoid dangerous climate change, and also key references to the role of hydrogen in meeting global climate targets.
Innovate UK has awarded funding to develop the UK’s first hydrogen injection system for a hydrogen/diesel ferry. The consortium is led by Ferguson Marine Engineering Limited and includes the BIG HIT partners Orkney Islands Council and the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC).
The HyDIME (Hydrogen Diesel Injection in a Marine Environment) project will design and integrate a hydrogen diesel dual fuel injection system on board a commercial ferry which will be deployed in the Orkney Islands.
This conference will bring together students and early career researchers working on hydrogen and fuel cells, to present the progress and challenges in their respective areas of research. An additional feature for this year, is keynote talks from alumni of the fuel cell DTC and CDT where they will share their experience and career after the PhD.
Join this important symposium with distinguished researchers, industrialists and policy makers presenting their vision for hydrogen and fuel cells globally and be part of the discussions for shaping the future of the sector in the UK. H2FC SUPERGEN is holding this conference to create a vision for hydrogen and fuel cells in the UK bringing together the entire hydrogen and fuel cell research community, inspiring collaboration and driving innovation.
ESCS2019 brings 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.
ACI’s 2019 Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Energy Summit will focus on maximizing commercial opportunities and partnerships in the renewable hydrogen & fuel cells industry. This two day event will bring together key industry stakeholders from all facets of the hydrogen industry to discuss the required economical and infrastructural innovations for a sustainable future energy carrier. The key discussions will involve monetisation, latest technologies implementations, material optimisation, production and transportation.
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.
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.
