Michael Yandrasits, PhD (Ion Conducting Membrane Group Manager Johnson Matthey Technology Centre)
Mossen Randeree (Doctoral Researcher)
Join us for an electrifying exploration of green hydrogen as researchers from Loughborough, Birmingham and London take attendees on a journey of discovery. The panel discussion will shed light on the acceleration of a significant change in the way energy is produced, distributed, and consumed using green hydrogen. It would help people understand the sparking innovation and, transitioning towards cleaner and more sustainable energy sources and how green hydrogen is disrupting traditional energy systems by creating a more sustainable future powered by hydrogen as a clean energy carrier. From clean cooking, aeronautics, home heating, hydrogen cars to net-zero goals, uncover hydrogen's diverse applications in a lively discussion. Get ready to ignite your curiosity and embrace a sustainable energy future!

Electric Vehicles That Run on Hydrogen: Fuel Cells for Transportation Applications

Michael Yandrasits, PhD (Ion Conducting Membrane Group Manager Johnson Matthey Technology Centre)
Vehicle electrification is required to decarbonize the transportation sector. The market for battery electric power systems is growing for certain light duty applications, however, vehicles that need to travel long distances, carry a heavy payload, or refuel rapidly, will be difficult to run on batteries alone. Hydrogen fuel cells are well suited for these applications due to their ability to decouple power density (payload capacity) from energy density (range). This talk will outline the fundamentals of fuel cell technology, comparisons to battery electric systems, and remaining cost and infrastructure challenges.

Hydrogen Combustion for Aviation

Ashley van Bruygom (Doctoral Researcher, National Centre for Combustion and Aerothermal Technology (NCCAT))
Global aircraft traffic is expected to increase substantially over the next 30 years. In order to meet industry and government commitments to reduce the impact of climate change, engine emissions must be reduced. Alternative fuels, such as hydrogen, have been suggested as a solution to this problem, however these are immature technologies and significant research and development is required before they are ready for flight.
Hydrogen is fundamentally different to what the industry is accustomed to using; as a gas rather than a liquid, hydrogen has extremely different characteristics that must be considered. This complexities of using hydrogen for aviation will be highlighted and additionally, what the National Centre for Combustion and Aerothermal Technology (NCCAT) is doing in collaboration with government and industry to develop hydrogen combustion for flight will be discussed.

Hydrogen Overview

Matt Brenton (Doctoral Researcher)
The presentation will provide an outline of current hydrogen production methods including the hydrogen rainbow. It will touch on why so much research and funding, including the UK government’s, is focused on hydrogen as an alternative to fossil fuels.
