IGEM is pleased to announce the release of its first ever Hydrogen Special Edition of its industry- renowned journal, Gas International (Gi).

This unique publication explores and celebrates all things hydrogen, bringing together some of the latest news and research from across the gas industry concerning this exciting fuel.

The publication comes at a time of enormous change for the gas industry as the UK and the world at large attempts to meet the challenges of decarbonisation in the face of climate change.

Hydrogen is expected to play a vital role in achieving the government’s commitment of eliminating the UK’s contribution to climate change by 2050, with the industry creating up to 8,000 jobs by 2030 and potentially unlocking up to 100,000 jobs by the middle of the century.

But despite the UK government’s huge ambitions, hydrogen is just one piece of the puzzle, and it will be necessary to seek solutions that bring the whole energy system together – including not just heat for buildings, but hard-to-decarbonise areas such as manufacturing, road transport, aviation and shipping.

Gas International Editor Sharon Baker-Hallam said: “With this special edition, we’re bringing you just a taste of some of the amazing work taking place across the energy sector to understand this fuel more clearly, to comprehend its strengths and limitations and to integrate it into our current energy infrastructure.”

Gas International, the journal of IGEM, is normally only available to members, but the Hydrogen Special Edition is available to all here
