Opinion: The need for a Scottish Institute of Technology

04/04/2018

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

29/03/2018

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.

Scientists in hydrogen breakthrough

23/04/2015

A breakthrough has been made in the development of clean hydrogen power, scientists believe. Researchers at the University of Bath and Yale University in the US have produced a new material for generating hydrogen from water - meaning it is less reliant on fossil fuels. The invention uses a newly designed molecular catalyst to split water in an electrolyser and create clean and storable hydrogen fuel. The research team are now in discussions with a number of energy companies about utilising this technology on a large scale and hope the breakthrough marks the start of contributing to providing the world with more sustainable fuels.
