Hydrogen for net zero

Does hydrogen really have a critical role to play in achieving net zero? And can the UK embrace the engineering realities of scaling up low-carbon hydrogen infrastructure? A new report published by the National Engineering Policy Centre (NEPC), led by the Royal Academy of Engineering, addresses these issues.

With input from across UK engineering, the NEPC report, The role of hydrogen in a net zero energy system, will provide a comprehensive understanding of how low-carbon hydrogen could contribute to achieving net zero, including:

  • Hydrogen’s value as an energy vector
  • Potential roles of hydrogen in a net zero energy system
  • Low-carbon hydrogen production methods and the associated risks and dependencies
  • Policy recommendations for government to ensure the benefits of hydrogen for a net zero energy system are realised

Journalists came to this briefing to hear from three of the report’s authors.


Speakers included:

Prof Nilay Shah OBE FREng, Professor of Process Systems Engineering at Imperial College London, Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and Vice Chair of the NEPC Net Zero Working Group

Dr Jenifer Baxter, Engineering Director and Head of Protium Wales, Protium Green Solutions

Prof Rebecca Lunn MBE FREng FRSE, Head of the Centre for Ground Engineering and Energy Geosciences at the University of Strathclyde and Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering
