During the two days it will:

  • Showcase innovation and best practice in deployment of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies
  • Highlight the importance of partnership working and international collaboration within our growing sector
  • Present current thinking and future trends across our industry, with significant networking opportunities
  • Include an entertaining and stimulating evening conference dinner

There will also be an optional visit to see the upgraded facilities at the Hydrogen Office in Methil.

This is a significant upgrade, which includes solar panels in addition to the wind turbine, upgraded electrolyser, and two new refuellers for the fleet of 17 hydrogen vehicles.

The hardware is all controlled by a sophisticated Toshiba energy management system, and the project has been made possible through the Local Energy Challenge Fund.
