The Green Hydrogen Vision and How to Achieve It
Prof Marcus Newborough, Development Director, ITM Power
Abstract: The case for adopting green hydrogen produced by water electrolysis as a zero-emissions fuel, feedstock and decarbonising agent will be presented. The production, storage and use of green hydrogen at a sufficient scale to achieve a zero-emissions energy system by 2050 poses several technological, economic and policy challenges. However, given appropriate research and deployment strategies, the UK can progressively move away from fossil fuels to an environmentally-sustainable future based largely on ‘green electrons and green molecules’.
Dr Marcus Newborough is Development Director of ITM Power, a manufacturer of PEM electrolysers. Previously he was Professor of Energy Systems at Cranfield and Heriot-Watt Universities. He has over 30 years’ experience in energy research, and has published over 100 scientific papers. In recent years he has been heavily involved in the development of power-to-gas systems, in the UK and French H2Mobility initiatives, and as Chair of the Technical Committees of Hydrogen Europe.
I-SEE seminars are free and open for all to attend.
