Title: Creating a smaller footprint - the value of hydrogen as a decarbonisation solution

Speaker: Gareth Davis, Costain

The use of hydrogen could help the UK reduce CO2 emissions significantly. This presentation will seek to understand the overall context for hydrogen as a means of decarbonisation and opportunities to contribute to climate change in transport, power, industrial and domestic sectors. As well as a review of potential uses of hydrogen in these diverse sectors, there will be a focus on the production, distribution and supply of hydrogen. This will include the incorporation of hydrogen into gas supplied by the National Transmission System (NTS), and how hydrogen might be integrated into schemes with energy from renewable sources. A review of current projects to establish hydrogen at both a local and national scale will also be presented.

Gareth Davis is a Principal Engineer in the Front End Solutions Group for Costain, based near Manchester Airport. Gareth has over 25 years’ experience in engineering from initial concept through to detailed design, as well as experience in energy efficiency, process simulation and business development.

Gareth has a Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering with Environmental Management from the University of Birmingham. He is a Member of the Institute of Chemical Engineers and a Lead Assessor for ESOS (Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme). Recent experience has included a feasibility study for the North-West Hydrogen Hub, as part of Costain’s wider decarbonisation strategy. This scheme seeks to establish a sub-network of large industrial companies to use hydrogen for heating requirements.
