We hope you enjoyed Dr Peter Clough’s talk, Hydrogen – The What, Where, When, How, hosted by BCCF, on 28 July.
If you missed the evening itself, you can catch up with Dr Clough’s highly entertaining, slightly Lord of the Rings-themed(!) talk on our YouTube channel here. It will answer lots of your questions on the different ways hydrogen can be produced in varying levels of eco-friendliness, whether it’s best for powering ships, cars, homes or industry, what policies would support the growth of hydrogen in the UK and much, much more.
If you’d like to learn more about the UK Government’s plans for hydrogen and how they might fit in to our net zero goals, you might be interested in the following resources:
· Showing its importance, ‘Driving the growth of low carbon hydrogen’ is point two of the Government’s ‘Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution’.
· The House of Commons Library has produced a detailed briefing for those keen to explore policy aspects in greater detail: UK Hydrogen Economy A Hydrogen Strategy had been expected by now, but as this article cheekily explains, ‘Dog eats UK government’s Hydrogen Strategy homework just as summer recess arrives’.
If you’re more interested in how you might actually interact with hydrogen in the coming years, these articles might be some food for thought… · Might you be able to run your boiler on a greener fuel in the future? The Guardian’s ‘Is hydrogen the solution to net-zero home heating?’ explains how.
· Although we’ve got used to the idea of electric cars, might hydrogen also have some answers? The RAC explains how they work, and also what models you can already buy. They’re also being considered by Formula 1.
· Others see hydrogen’s future as a way of moving large numbers of people about instead, in planes, trains and ships (not automobiles), as Forbes explains.
