H2FC Supergen: Five Years Anniversary Celebration, Imperial College, 28th April 2017

The Hydrogen and Fuel Cells (H2FC) Supergen Research Hub has had its 5-years anniversary event to celebrate half a decade of achievements in H2FC research across 21 leading universities in the UK.

The day, which started with a buffet lunch, composed of  presentations, followed by a drinks reception.

Senior academics leading on projects in the areas of hydrogen production, storage and safety, SOFC and PEFCs, as well as energy systems, socioecomic and policy research, presented the key achievements and the real world impact made through the research funded and coordinated by the Hub in the last five years – also presented as the Five years of Impact Report. Guest speakers and the some of the Hub’s Industrial Advisory Board Members talked about the developments in the sector in the last five years, as shown by the programme below.
