Brunel Hydrogen: An Industry Showcase

A special showcase exploring the future of Hydrogen and Brunel’s collaborative, innovative approach.

To include a panel discussion, short presentations, and lab tours. An Interactive Journey – Water to Water – traversing every stage of the hydrogen economy, from production through to the end product of combustion.

Interactive Journey to provide a visual understanding of the Hydrogen Economy, particularly in terms of Production, Gas Transport and Management, and Applications.

To do so through presenting actual equipment and materials, demonstrating a progression from inputs (energy sources, water), through the stages of production, compression, storage, transport, control systems, and through to transport application but also heating and industrial uses.

To illustrate where new technology, research etc is underway or needed to solve problems and improve processes and materials. To make clear that physical, digital, and social approaches are required, and in an integrated fashion.
