The Henry Cavendish Lectures will bring you key players from UK industry and academia who will be sharing their views on what needs to be done to develop a UK hydrogen economy as we strive towards achieving net zero by 2050.
Each lecture will feature a member of the government’s Hydrogen Advisory Council.
This first lecture will be given by Paul Bogers, Vice President for Hydrogen, Shell plc.
Paul Bogers was recently appointed as the VP for Hydrogen, looking after all aspects of Shell’s growing hydrogen business. In this role Paul will oversee Shell’s work in hydrogen as a fuel for transport and the growing business in industrial hydrogen.
Prior to taking this role, Paul was Shell’s VP for Fuel Technologies, leading a team of 200+ scientists and engineers looking after all fuels development, including actively shaping future fuels and alternatives.
Previous assignments in Shell included a range of commercial, technical and strategy roles in Shell’s aviation business and overseeing differentiated fuels and lubricants product development in the UK and US leading to a world’s first commercial flights on GTL Jet fuel as well as spearheading development of Pennzoil Pureplus – the first Motoroil born from Natural Gas.
Paul holds an MSc in Aerospace Engineering from Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands, and a post-graduate degree in fluid dynamics from the Von Karman Institute in Brussels
About Henry Cavendish
Henry Cavendish was an English natural philosopher, scientist, and an important experimental and theoretical chemist and physicist. He is noted for his discovery of hydrogen, which he termed "inflammable air". He described the density of inflammable air, which formed water on combustion, in a 1766 paper, On Factitious Airs. Antoine Lavoisier later reproduced Cavendish's experiment and gave the element its name.
