The H2FC Supergen Research Conference in St Andrews is less than two weeks away. We’ve got a cracking set of speakers, research presentations and poster exhibition lined up, so if you haven’t booked yet:
DAY 1 – WEDNESDAY 8 JUNE 2022
1000 – 1715hrs
(registration/coffee from 0900)
Welcome and opening address
Prof. John Irvine, University of St Andrews
Co-director, H2FC Supergen Hub
UK-HyRES: UKRI Co-ordinator for Research Challenges in Hydrogen and Alternative Liquid Fuels
Prof. Tim Mays, University of Bath & UK HyRES Project Coordinator
Driving the growth of low carbon Hydrogen and alternative liquid fuels. UK-HyRES aims to tackle the research challenges blocking the wider use of low carbon fuels in the UK – funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI)
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!
Over 20 research presentations from
industry and academia covering:
Hydrogen systems and applications
Join us on the evening of 8 June at University of St Andrews’s historic College Hall
POSTER EXHIBITION AND COMPETITION
DRINKS RECEPTION AND GALA DINNER
1800hrs – late
Our Gala dinner is a ticketed event – includes 3-course meal and 1/2 bottle wine.
IOP Publishing is proud to sponsor a prize for the best poster at this year’s H2FC Research Conference, providing recognition and support for impactful energy research.
DAY 2 – THURSDAY 8 JUNE 2022
0900 – 1600hrs
Welcome and Poster Prize-giving
Prof. Ian Metcalfe, Newcastle University
Co-director, H2FC Supergen Hub
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.
A further 20 research presentations
from researchers covering:
Fuel cell systems and applications
Political economic and social aspects of H2
and many more
We hope to see you in St Andrews!
