Hydrogen as a Transport Fuel PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 19 March 2012
Speaker: Prof. Kevin Kendall (Birmingham University, School of Chemical Engineering)

Professor Kevin Kendall has been researching hydrogen and fuel cells for 30 years. He was responsible for the first hydrogen filling station in England, which has fuelled hydrogen vehicles running on the Birmingham University campus since 2008. But what is the full potential of hydrogen as a transport fuel? When can we expect affordable mass production of fuel cell vehicles to occur? How can large quantities of hydrogen be produced cleanly? Prof. Kendall will address these issues and take questions from the floor.

Shale Gas and the Road Fuel Market PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 29 February 2012
Shale Gas and the Road Fuel Market:
Can Compressed Natural Gas reduce oil dependence in UK transport?

Speaker: John Baldwin, (Managing Director, CNG Services)

DECC forecasts that Britain will be importing 1 million barrels of oil a day in 2020, primarily for use in road transport. At $150 a barrel, this translates to $3 billion a month spent on imported oil. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is already used as a road transport fuel in many countries. To what extent could increased use of CNG help reduce oil consumption in the UK? What impact does the shale gas revolution have on this?

John Baldwin (Managing Director, CNG Services) will explain why he thinks that shale gas and CNG for road transport will reduce UK oil dependency and carbon emissions, as well as support growth in renewables.
