Reaching our net zero targets is a big challenge requiring interdisciplinary research and collaboration across the energy supply chain.
Hydrogen will be a hugely important part of the future as we move towards net zero and it’s important to work out where, when and how it makes sense to produce, transport and use it. I am very excited to co-Direct the UK-HyRES Hub and lead on the environmental theme. We will be analysing process and technology alternatives to ensure their implementation really will reduce carbon and other environmental emissions. This helps to find truly sustainable solutions and avoid unintended consequences.
