Prof. Tim Mays Delivers Hydrogen Workshop for DESNZ

The Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) held a Science and Engineering Week to celebrate science and its contribution to delivering Net Zero and tackling climate change. The DESNZ programme, organised by the Office of the Chief Scientific Advisor (CSA), aimed to shine a light on the role science plays, create networks and inspire staff across the department to engage further with science.

As part of the week, University of Bath researchers delivered three online workshops with a focus on energy security and net zero transition. The workshops, which were attended by over 100 people, explored applying behavioural evidence in policy; energy infrastructure and grid resilience; and the research challenges that need to be resolved to enable and accelerate the development and deployment of sustainable hydrogen technologies to support Net Zero 2050.

Prof Tim Mays shared insights on the broad scope of hydrogen and hydrogen carriers, including ‘green hydrogen’. He highlighted current high-priority research challenges which must be resolved to support Net Zero 2050.

Prof Tim Mays says: “It was a pleasure and privilege to present on hydrogen to DESNZ colleagues and to engage in fascinating follow-up discussions. There is clearly significant and growing interest in government in this area. I hope that I was able to underpin that interest in the workshop. Many thanks to the Institute for Policy Research (IPR) for co-ordinating with DESNZ.”
