A Scottish hydrogen expert has been lined up to speak at an industry webinar later this month.
Nigel Holmes, CEO of the Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (SHFCA), will discuss scaling up hydrogen supply demand across Scotland as part of research body GenComm’s ‘Smart H2 Spring Series’.
The webinar, which is the fourth in the series and will be held on May 18, will examine how countries are scaling up and optimising production from additional green energy resources to meet current demand and opening new avenues of generation for utilisation.
The SHFCA has been described as “one of the most proactive hydrogen & fuel cell industry associations” in Europe.
It supports 150 members, with an increasing number from overseas that are involved with hydrogen and fuel cell activities in Scotland.
Mr Holmes said: “Hydrogen is recognised as key to tackling hard to treat emissions, and delivering Net Zero. We now need to rapidly scale up hydrogen supply, demand, and the connecting infrastructure together.
“The lessons learned with EU funded projects such as GenComm, Big Hit in Orkney, Green Hysland in Majorca, and Heavenn in the North Netherlands will help us all to accelerate the safe deployment of hydrogen territories and valleys across Europe.”
GenComm programme manager, Paul McCormack said: “The global energy transition is now gathering pace and Hydrogen is a transformational force on our journey to net zero. Through innovative applications, new sector coupling opportunities and pioneering Power– to-X (P2X) technologies it is unlocking our new low carbon energy future. Our 4th webinar in the SMART H2 series will qualify hydrogen demand, use and future production role in our switch from fossil fuels.”
