UK lacking a tech grip


Ever heard of the International Energy Agency’s Technology Collaboration Programme? Possibly not. It doesn’t exactly hit the headlines.


Unleashing the power of hydrogen


Very soon, the Climate Change Committee is expected to call for a ‘net zero’ carbon emission target for 2050. It underlines how serious rapid global warming is and how we should all act collectively as quickly as possible, but even in the face of doomsday predictions there is increasing evidence that an alternative future can be realised, using technology that is both clean and green.


CCUS is a stopgap to a big hydrogen world


As a proponent of hydrogen being key to the UK’s atmospheric decarbonisation drive, I am concerned that hydrogen receives so little press when compared with carbon capture and storage (CCS).


‘Mistake’ to overlook hydrogen electrolysis in clean energy drive


As a proponent of hydrogen being a very significant component in the UK’s atmospheric decarbonisation drive, I read with interest two recent reports; Delivering Clean Growth, CCUS Cost Challenge Task Force, July 2018 and Reducing UK Emissions, Committee on Climate Change, June 2018.


Opinion: The need for a Scottish Institute of Technology


I’m concerned.  I follow a large number of UK and overseas university and energy related research institutes both on Twitter and directly.  It helps keep me up to speed on what the latest research work is and where it’s going on.


Opinion: Renewables + Hydrogen = Industry Reimagined


Hydrogen has been closely associated with key aspects of the new energy transition for many years. Its properties as a storage medium and energy carrier make it a key point in any serious discussion about energy storage, and its consequent role in increasing renewable penetration in energy generation, transmission and distribution. Hydrogen fuel cells are also high on the agenda for expanding the number of light electric vehicles on the road.
