Following the Government's commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, hydrogen is stated to play a role as an energy vector in the reduction of emissions from power, transport, and industrial sectors.
In March 2022, IMECHE hosted the inaugural Engineering Challenges in the Hydrogen Economy conference which provided engineers with a platform to discuss common engineering challenges, applications, and strategies. As more projects move from concept to demonstration and commercial scale, there is a need to continue the discussion, share lessons learned and identify the role of the mechanical engineer.
This conference is an opportunity for engineers to identify challenges across the hydrogen value chain including production, distribution, storage, and utilisation. Hydrogen can be a useful part of the energy system, but engineers must understand the inherent challenges before it can be used effectively, and at scale, in a net-zero future energy economy.
Marcus Walls-Bruck, Head of Hydrogen Technologies, at the National Composites Centre, is presenting at the IMECHE event 'Composites and Hydrogen - Addressing the challenge of cryogenics' at 3.15pm on 14th March 2023. The event is taking place 14th - 15th March, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London.
