Energy Conversation: A Hydrogen Future?

  • Tuesday, 27 November 2018 18:00 - 20:00

Venue: Strathclyde Business School, 199 Cathedral Street, Glasgow, G4 0QU


Centre for Energy Policy Energy Conversations:

How feasible and desirable is a transition to a hydrogen future? (chaired by Alf Young)

Registration and welcome refreshments from 5:30pm.

Event will run 6:00pm-7:30pm, and will be followed by a drinks reception.

Conversationalists include: David Joffe, UK Committee on Climate Change; Graeme Sweeney, Zero Emissions Platform and Visiting Professor at the Centre for Energy Policy, University of Strathclyde; and Karen Turner, Director of the Centre for Energy Policy, University of Strathclyde.

Both the UK and Scottish Governments have signalled that hydrogen is likely to play a key role in the decarbonisation of our economy, with the UK Clean Growth Strategy and Scottish Energy Strategy each presenting a high-hydrogen scenario as one possible pathway for achieving a dramatically decarbonised energy system. There are demonstrator projects across the UK, from Orkney to Keele, trialling a range of hydrogen applications from using hydrogen fuel cells to power ferries, to providing hydrogen as a substitute fuel for natural gas for domestic heating and cooking.

Join us at this Energy Conversation to explore what we mean by a hydrogen future and what the implications of such a transition might be. We will consider:

  • What scale of hydrogen deployment is feasible, over what timescale?
  • What things (e.g. technologies, policies, finance) might need to be in place to support a hydrogen future – and where do we see those coming from?
  • How can hydrogen support a Just Transition, where jobs and carbon are not off-shored?
  • What options might we be foreclosing if we opted for a high-hydrogen future?
  • How can we uncover the real costs of transitioning to a hydrogen future? How can we decide on how those costs should be distributed?
  • What – if any – challenges might there be around public acceptability? Are people supportive of a hydrogen future?
