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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
