Holmes highlights hydrogen as high priority for Scotland’s transport sector

The prospects for hydrogen providing zero-carbon fuel for local council bus fleets is one of the key sessions at the Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, which opens its two-day annual conference today (11 Oct).

Representatives from Aberdeen, Perth, Dundee and Fife councils – as well as from the national quango Transport Scotland – are among those attending the two-day conference, which will be formally opened by Sir Jim McDonald, Principal of Strathclyde University.

Nigel Holmes, Chief Executive of the Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, commented: “Hydrogen and fuel cells can be the smarter choice in heat, power and transport for low carbon deployments.

“Linking all of these activities together into smart integrated energy systems of the future is the underpinning theme of hydrogen as the flexible and clean energy vector.”

The flagship session on integrating low carbon transport into the Scottish energy system takes place tomorrow morning (12 Oct) at the Technology Innovation Centre in Glasgow.
