10:55 – HyNet: Deploying low-carbon hydrogen at scale

Progressive Energy was formed in 1998 to develop low-carbon technologies from concept to commercial deployment. It has developed projects throughout the energy system supply chain, and has expertise in generation, distribution, storage and use of energy. Since 2016, Progressive and its partners have been developing the HyNet project, a Track 1 cluster in the Government’s Cluster Sequencing process. HyNet will enable the manufacturing sector across the North West of England and North Wales to decarbonise from as early as 2025, through large-scale deployment of CCS and low-carbon hydrogen. HyNet includes development of CCS, hydrogen generation and hydrogen distribution infrastructure, as well as work with industrial partners to convert their processes to use hydrogen.


 

Martin Burton
Sector Manager CPI & Country Manager UK

11:20 –  Rotork provides complete control for a low carbon world

Rotork will demonstrate how solutions (flow control equipment and instrumentation) for power, oil and gas, and process control will transfer into hydrogen applications. It will highlight Rotork’s successes in green hydrogen electrolysis applications where extremely precise control is needed. In the transition from a hydrocarbon to a low-carbon and a hydrogen-led future (including storage and transportation, pipelines and ammonia), this is an evolution not a revolution.
Martin has over 30 years’ experience in the flow control industry operating within industrial, process and oil and gas markets. He has been with Rotork for 10 years, primarily covering instrumentation control products, international projects and key accounts.


 

Dr Lee Juby CEng FIET
Commercial Director

11:45 – Rapid to Deploy, Hydrogen Vehicle Refuelling: Solving the Chicken and Egg Dilemma

Lee is an accomplished sales leader with over 25 years’ experience in international business development and commercialisation of advanced technology in the energy and transport sectors. He has experience leading AIM listed and Joint Venture start-ups through to responsibility for new technology introduction for a division of a large blue-chip multinational. Appointed Commercial Director in January 2021, Lee leads the commercial team in NanoSUN’s vision for commercial success and sustainable growth. Responsible for establishing and retaining the organisation’s position in the market, Lee works closely with customers and key stakeholders within the transport sector to ensure their hydrogen needs are met.

Dr Pirmin Ulmann
Co-founder of b-science.net

12:10 – Innovations in Polymer Fuel Cells & Electrolysers for Production and Use of Green Hydrogen

EFL offers consulting, multi-client reports, thought leadership and training presentations aimed at Optimizing Technology Portfolios. Projects to date have focused on catalysis, low carbon chemicals and polymers, biorenewables, carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) as well as production and recycling of fuel cells, lithium ion batteries (LIB), rare earth magnets and other components for renewable energy and power systems.


 

Denis Funk
FLEXIM Global Head of Market Management for Power Generation

12:45 – Non-invasive flow measurement of blended hydrogen in natural gas or pure hydrogen

Hydrogen’s chemical characteristics like density and sound velocity differ immensely from typical fuel gases. These characteristics can be challenging for established flow measurement technologies. The particularly small molecular size and chemical reactivity of hydrogen requires special care regarding the implementation of flow measurement equipment into pipelines. Currently, many projects worldwide are evaluating the suitability of different flow measurement technologies for hydrogen measurements.

This presentation will be review several hydrogen application feasibility tests confirming the performance capability of FLEXIM’s non-invasive flow measurement solutions with both blended and pure hydrogen.


 

Bill Ireland
CEO

13:10 – The practicalities of delivering Hydrogen systems
