Hydrogen: a fuel for transport and energy storage
1st June 2016£95 – £500
Date: Wednesday 1 June 2016
Venue: Institution of Mechanical Engineers, London
Cost: £95 (student) – £500 (non-member)
TRANSFORMING THE ENERGY AND TRANSPORT SECTORS
As hydrogen projects gather pace across the transport sector and beyond, leading industry figures will analyse barriers and opportunities, determining the future scope for hydrogen. Whilst some remain sceptical about the role hydrogen can play, leading automotive OEMs are investing in the production of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and the IEA 2015 hydrogen and fuel cell roadmap estimates that the global market will potentially be in the hundreds of billions by 2050. This timely event will bring together experts from across the industry to discuss the future of hydrogen – its barriers and limits, as well as its potential to transform the energy and transport sectors. From generation and storage to fuel cell vehicles and city-wide emissions reduction strategies, this technical seminar will consider the positions from sceptic to enthusiast to find a realistic way forward in this polarised sector.
