A talk by Mike Dolmen of Element Energy looking at the potential of hydrogen in the UK's future energy mix. Alongside an introduction to hydrogen, he will look at its potential role in achieving Net Zero, and barriers / challenges still to be overcome, drawing on experience from some of the pilot projects they are involved with.
