Taking an idea in the lab to a company –
The Bramble Energy story

Prof. Anthony Kucernak, Imperial College London

Bramble Energy was spun out from work performed at Imperial College and UCL. The genesis of that work was an EPSRC project which started in October 2009. This talk will focus on the path from academic laboratory to company and some of the decisions to be made along that route!

Accelerating the integration
of hydrogen 
in energy systems

Prof. Sara Walker, Newcastle University & Director of the
EPSRC National Centre for Energy Systems Integration

It is feasible to consider the use of hydrogen as an energy vector in a wide range of energy end uses, within an Energy Systems Integration (ESI) framework. By taking an ESI approach, we can identify potential conflicts and synergies in the system, and evaluate the benefits and risks of coupling elements of energy systems. Here, we present Hydrogen Integration for an Accelerated Transition (HI-ACT), a Centre co-ordinated by Prof Walker, looking at this thorny challenge.

A multi-scale journey into fuel cells and
electrolysis hydrogen production

Dr Qiong Cai, University of Surrey

Fuel cells and hydrogen electrolysers are related (sometimes reversible) electrochemical energy technologies. This talk will cover several different fuel cell and electrolyser technologies, and take a multiscale view of these technologies from the application considerations of coupling electrolysers with renewables, to the fundamental science and materials design. The talk will also discuss the importance of combining modelling with experimental work for performance improvement.
