Hydrogen and fuel cells: Innovative solutions for low carbon heat

Hydrogen and fuel cells: Innovative solutions for low carbon heat

29th February 2016
2 hours
16.00 – 18.00, Monday 29th February 2016 | Westminster, London Chair: Rebecca Pow MP Speakers:David Joffe - Head of Modelling, Committee on Climate ChangeDr Marcus Newborough - ITM Power Ian Chisholm - Doosan BabcockKlaus Ullrich - Fuel Cell Energy Solutions Phil Caldwell - Ceres Power  Further speakers tbcRSVP by emailing owain.mortimer@policyconnect.org.uk This event will bring together Government Ministers, Parliamentarians, civil servants and industry leaders and will be a great opportunity to discuss the possibilities for the deployment of hydrogen and fuel cells for low carbon heat in the UK. The discussion, being held in partnership with the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, will highlight how hydrogen and fuel cells can help the Government in delivering its low carbon heat agenda and reach the greenhouse gas emissions goals as outlined in the Committee on Climate Change’s recent Fifth Carbon Budget. Considering the UK is home to a number of leading international hydrogen supply and storage companies, the event will explore the opportunity for hydrogen to be used for heat, including the potential to make better use of existing gas infrastructure, and the role for ‘power to gas’. It will also highlight the benefits of fuel cell CHP for domestic, commercial and industrial applications, also looking at its role in delivering low carbon heat. Members of the panel will also be invited to discuss how these benefits can be accelerated, and what the associated opportunities are for ‘UK plc’ in this sector. Illustrations from the UK HFCA will showcase how ‘real world’ fuel cell stationary installations across London and beyond are already delivering low carbon options heat options. The event follows on from Carbon Connect’s second report in Carbon Connect’s Future Heat Series, entitled ‘Policy for Heat: Transforming the System, and maintains the focus on low carbon heat solutions.
