H2FC SUPERGEN Release Calls for HFC Research and White Paper on Low Carbon Heating

 Over the next four years the Hydrogen and Fuel Cells SUPERGEN Hub will be issuing a series of calls for research proposals to support its mission as the UK research Hub in hydrogen, and in fuel cells. Alongside this, the Hub will also be  producing four evidence based white papers aimed at informing key stakeholders, and especially policy makers, of the roles and potential benefits of hydrogen, and of fuel cell, technologies in the areas of, low carbon heating systems, low carbon energy systems, including the issue of intermittency with increased penetration of renewables, ensuring secure and affordable energy supplies for the future, future low carbon transport systems.

‘Project Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Rock Band’ debut at the London H2FC Supergen Summer BBQ

The first London H2FC Supergen Summer Social saw Hydrogen & Fuel Cell researchers from across the capital enjoy some burgers, beer and zero-emission music powered by a 10 kW PEMFC-supercapacitor hybrid power generator developed by students and researchers at Imperial College.

The event which took place at Imperial College Union on August 6th, saw researchers from the College joined by scientists and engineers from other institutions, including University College London. Whilst the BBQ attendees discussed their research and potential collaborations they listened to Michael Parkes, a PhD student at Imperial College, perform a number of tracks including Nirvana classic ‘Smells like Teen Spirit’ on a guitar powered by the zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell-supercapacitor power generator.
