Hydrogen Knowledge Centre Launch Event-March-21

Hydrogen Knowledge Centre Launch Event

17/03/2021 10:00 - 10:45

This is a free of charge event.

As we work toward our net zero carbon emissions targets there is ever increasing pressure for us to move away from fossil fuel dependency.

We are seeing considerable growth in the exploration of low carbon hydrogen applications and technologies, with hydrogen research, trials and demonstrations underway internationally. The challenge for many is how they capture this breadth of hydrogen learning and stay up to date with the latest technical and policy developments.

IGEM’s Hydrogen Knowledge Centre is a digital resource hub for everything related to hydrogen energy. A searchable repository of hydrogen records from a wide range of sources including public agencies, gas network companies, academic and research institutions, supply chain organisations and energy and engineering experts.

IGEM are passionate about supporting the transition to a net-zero carbon emissions future - this is one of the ways in which we’re playing our part.

Our goal is to capture existing and newly published hydrogen learning. Consolidating knowledge into one searchable library, making hydrogen information and research quick and easy to find.  

Join us on the 17 March for a discussion on the future of hydrogen, including presentations from:

• Dr Mark Taylor FIMA, Deputy Director for Energy Innovation, Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

• Dr Stuart Hawksworth, Head of the Centre for Energy & Major Hazards at the HSE, and President of the International Association for Hydrogen Safety

• Keith Owen, Head of Systems Development and Energy Strategy at Northern Gas Networks

Attendees will also be some of the first people to see the new Hydrogen Knowledge Centre and receive a unique preview of its capabilities and how it can support the sector towards a greener future. 

Thank you to the key contributors:

• Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

• International Association for Hydrogen Safety (HySafe)

• Health and Safety Executive (HSE)

• UK Gas Network Companies
