At UK-HyRES we want to engage with as many stakeholders as possible. Together we can drive industry growth and lead the way to a more sustainable future.

See the currently advertised events below, these are typically workshop events, expertly led, so everyone can contribute and shape the future of Hydrogen research and innovation.

Who are these events for?

Industrialists | Academics | Civic Sector | Consultancies | Consortia | Third Sector | Manufacture | Social Scientists | End Users |

26th September 2023 | 10:00 – 17:00 | The Exchange, Centenary Square, Birmingham

The UK-HyRES Hub for Research Challenges in Hydrogen and Alternative LIquid Fuels held a joint launch in conjunction with the HI-ACT Hub (Hydrogen Integration for Accelerated Energy Transitions) on the 26th September 2023 in Birmingham.

Full details of event will be available shortly.

27th September 2023 | 09:30 – 14:00 | The Exchange, Centenary Square, Birmingham

The first joint SAB meeting for the UK-HyRES Hub for Research Challenges in Hydrogen and Alternative LIquid Fuels and HI-ACT Hub (Hydrogen Integration for Accelerated Energy Transitions) was held on the 27th September 2023 in Birmingham.

20th April 2023 10:00 to 15:00

UK-HyRES held its latest hydrogen community engagement meeting, “Future Perspective”, at the Royal Society of Edinburgh on Thursday 20 April 2023. A full report of the meeting will be available soon, but it is worth saying at this stage that attendance was great (> 60 delegates) with an excellent range of national and international speakers.

Special thanks are due to Gus MacIntosh (Department for Energy Security and New Zero), Peter Holtappels (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) and not least Anthony Kucernak (Imperial College London) who provided a recording of his talk while currently in New Zealand! Nigel Holmes (Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Association) deserves a special mention as a cool and calm chair of a lively afternoon panel discussion, see photo. To cap an excellent day, the RSE venue was fantastic, and we were blessed with clear blue skies in Edinburgh for the duration.

20th July – 09:30 to 12:30

Alternative liquid fuels such as ammonia are increasingly regarded as a key component of the future energy mix towards the net zero imperative. Through our launch workshop, you also told us that alternative liquid fuels was one of the major areas that you wanted to discuss. On the 20th July UK-HyRES held the fourth themed workshop focused on the research challenges, future vision and opportunities surrounding ammonia and alternative liquid fuels to answer that call.

Discussion focused not only around ammonia but also of some other alternatives such as ethanol, methanol and formic acid

5th July – 09:30 to 12:30

The end use of hydrogen is crucial to accelerating the uptake of hydrogen and alternative liquid fuels in pursuit of net zero. In the workshop we watched an enlightening video, recommended by Nigel Holmes (Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association)  and produced by Ben Burman, summarising the motivation and challenges in hydrogen uptake.

Later in the workshop, Anthony Kurcernak (Imperial College London) delivered an insight talk on the strategic drivers for change, highlighting the many end users with a stake in the hydrogen economy. Qiong Cai (University of Surrey) gave the final insight talk, with her perspective on the future vision for hydrogen fuel cell technology, such as cheaper and more durable catalysts.

16th June – 13:30 to 16:30

Workshops 3 took place on the 16th June 2022, 13:30-16:30. Engaging insight talks were delivered during each session.

David Book (University of Birmingham) and Chris Manson-Whitton (Progressive Energyset the landscape with their strategic drivers for change talk. We also heard from Gavin Walker (University of Nottingham) and Shubi Mukherjee (Ceres Power), who also delivered their future vision for storage. All four storage insight talks are available to watch below, as well as the full workshop recording.

16th June – 09:30 to 12:30

Workshops 2 took place on the 16th June 2022, 09:30-12:30. There was engagement from the full spectrum of stakeholders across the hydrogen economy.

Anton Orpin-Massey (Senior Policy Advisor, Hydrogen Production Strategy, BEISand Richard Sulley (Net Zero project director at the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authorityspoke about the strategic drivers for change. Marcus Newborough (Development Director at ITM Powerand Patricia Thornley (Director Supergen Bioenergy Hub) later discussed their future vision.

9th May – 13:30 to 16:30

The UK-HyRES launch workshop took place online with the project team present in person at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution following a Board meeting in the morning.

There was excellent engagement across academia, industry, government, consultancies, consortia and NGOs with over 130 attendees, many staying on for the full three hours.

The main focus was to introduce the team and establish a basis for the upcoming workshops. Key insights were generated following the Theory of Change framework.
