Hydrogen cogeneration - will nuclear rise to the challenge?

Join the team from Frazer-Nash Consultancy as they host an interactive event in conjunction with Nuclear AMRC on September 20.

Date: 20/09/2022
Time: 09:30-15:30 
Location: AMRC Knowledge Transfer Centre, Rotherham

The event will cover a wide range of topics, delivered by experts across the industry, about the future of hydrogen cogeneration, including:

  • Examples of current projects in the cogeneration space
  • Insight from the hydrogen supply producers and nuclear vendors
  • Industrial and social impacts
  • Dissemination of emissions studies commissioned by BEIS

The event will bring together leaders across multiple sectors, to share learnings on how collaboration is needed to expedite decarbonisation and achieve Net Zero. Planned sessions include:

- Keynote speech

- Dissemination of current nuclear to hydrogen cogeneration work
(HySupply2, Strategic Innovation Funding projects and more)

- Presentations from hydrogen producers

- Presentations from nuclear vendors

- Presentations on the BEIS Fugitive Hydrogen Emissions study

- Social impact panel discussion

- Industrial impact panel discussion

- Hydrogen distribution and storage presentation

- Networking sessions

There is a fantastic line up of speakers from organisations including BEIS, Ceres Power, Hynamics, Innovate UK, KBR, Nuclear Industry Association, NNL, Northern Gas Networks, STFC, Terrestrial Energy, Rolls-Royce SMR and more!


Why Hydrogen Cogeneration?

Hydrogen is already identified as a key player to achieve Net Zero.

The government has set a vision of hydrogen production from renewables, nuclear and other sources, with a combination of these needed to meet decarbonisation goals.

Increased collaboration and joint efforts from both hydrogen and nuclear sectors are necessary to expedite this decarbonisation. Cross-sector learning can help to target areas which are difficult to decarbonise, for example, the electricity system, heavy industry, shipping and other sectors, each of which present different challenges.

The more types of generation there are, the more challenging collaboration/stakeholder engagement can be, adding to the complexities of proposed solutions.

There is a need to proactively listen to understand individual and group challenges, to consider how hydrogen and nuclear can come together to form a solution while emphasising the roles that each energy vector plays. Hydrogen and nuclear are not competing; both are needed to achieve a Net Zero future.
