The Project

An outgoing KT Fellowship for Dr Tim Mays to capture evidence for the need and requirements of a UK Hydrogen Energy Programme through consulting with researchers, industry and other energy stakeholders. He will also be exploring barriers to exploitation of hydrogen energy. The Department of Energy and Climate Change and the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) are providing mentoring to Dr Mays to ensure the findings can influence energy policy.

Potential Benefits

  • Facilitate effective co-ordination, dissemination and impact of research
  • Inform and influence long term energy policy and regulatory framework
  • Boost investor confidence and reduce risk
  • Development of the university reputation in the area
