E4tech Director David Hart is presenting our recent work on electrolysis for the FCH-JU at the 20th World Hydrogen Energy Conference (WHEC) in Gwangju, South Korea. WHEC runs from 16-20 June and Prof. Hart will be attending all week, presenting on Monday 16th and chairing a session on Tuesday 17th.

The Liquid Air Energy Network launched its report Liquid air on the Highway on 04.06.2014 which describes the case for using liquid air or nitrogen as a part of the UK’s transport energy mix. E4tech welcomes this important report and hosted a related workshop where industry experts discussed research needs and new opportunities in this field. The workshop has succeeded in delivering strong conclusions on possible synergies, leading to opportunities for better collaboration and benefit to the UK.

Today E4tech is hosting an industry expert workshop to look at synergies between emerging low temperature technologies on road vehicles, including refrigeration, cryogenic fuels, new internal combustion thermodynamics, and novel applications of low temperatures. These areas of research and application are not joined up - the question is, should they be? More information is available here.

E4tech Director Dr David Hart will join other industry experts, financiers, policymakers and thought leaders at the IHT Global Clean Energy Forum 2013 in Doha, Qatar where they will explore the new energy reality – that of abundant fossil fuels, cooling political sentiment towards renewables and risk-averse investors – and its impact on the journey towards a sustainable future. On 9 October, David will offer his insight on innovation in sustainable transport, presenting facts about electric vehicles, biofuels, and their impact on the traditional automakers and fuel providers.

On 2 October, E4tech's Luca Bertuccioli will join members of the government, academia, and the private & public sectors at the WTO Public Forum 2013 for a panel discussion on global value chains in green goods and services. The annual event, hosted by the World Trade Organisation, aims to provide a platform for public debate across a wide range of WTO issues and trade topics. Using photovoltaics as an example, Luca will discuss how the dependence on policy incentives to create the market for sustainable energy technologies has meant that these markets have moved around quite rapidly as policy regimes have changed.
