The 4th H2FC SUPERGEN Hub Research Forum was hosted by Professor John Irvine at the University of St-Andrews this year, on 1st-2nd September 2016.
Twenty-two leading researchers, from universities across the country, presented the latest developments in their research across topics ranging through Hydrogen Production and Storage, Safety of Compressed Hydrogen Tanks, PEM Fuel Cells, Solid Oxide Fuel Cells, as well as research projects and a White Paper looking at Policy and Socio-economic implications for using Hydrogen & Fuel Cells in the future Energy System.
This year the Forum was enriched by the presentations from some of the Advisory Board members: Sue Ellis (Johnson Matthey) presented on ‘H2FC Energy Systems -H2 & FC research needs’, David Hart (E4tech) presented on the ‘Steps and research needed to get to mass manufacturing of automotive PEM fuel cells’, Dr Paul Adcock (Inteligent Energy) presented on the ‘Relationship between industrial and academic research relating to fuel cell technology’, Nigel Holmes (SHFCA) presented the ‘Current Highlights and H2FC Roadmap (2016)’ and Dr Stuart Hawksworth (HSL), provided and update on the ‘Hydrogen/Energy Activities at the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL)’.
This Forum, which is a closed event for the Hub Principle Investigators (PIs), the Management and Advisory Boards, provides the platform for the PIs to present the progress and developments made in their projects funded by or through the Hub. However, many of the Hub researchers are happy to have their presentations made public, and we are happy to share these with you here.
