This workshop organised by the HyStorPor project will bring together experts from industry and academia to discuss the development of the hydrogen economy. This includes the need for substantial infrastructure to connect hydrogen production with users, and to provide large-scale hydrogen storage to balance supply with demand.
Hydrogen offers a unique cross-system opportunity to decarbonise energy, but many challenges still lay ahead.
Storing hydrogen at a large scale would offer a flexible solution to seasonal energy storage, balancing inter-seasonal energy demand, and would support the repurposing of the gas grid to replace methane for heating.
Large-scale hydrogen storage in salt caverns is believed to be feasible, but such facilities only exist in a very limited number of sites.
The HyStorPor project is led by the University of Edinburgh and investigates the potential of large-scale geological storage of hydrogen in porous rocks, which are widely distributed across the world, opening up much greater opportunities for subsurface hydrogen storage.
Find out more about current developments in the sector and how partnerships, in particular with academia, can help Scotland realise the potential of hydrogen. How have all the recent assessments and advances accelerated change and shown us what is possible?
