Public meeting regarding the opportunities for using ‘green’ hydrogen produced from renewable energy in transport and heating will take place later this month in Kirkwall, Orkney.

The speakers at the meeting will offer updates on BIG HIT initiative, a five-year project aimed at overcoming local grid constraints through the use of renewable energy to produce hydrogen.

The list of speakers includes Neil Kermode from the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) who will offer updates on Eday renewable energy developments, Nigel Holmes from Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (SHFCA) who will provide the public with an overview of ‘Green H2’ activities in Scotland, as well as Mark Hull from Community Energy Scotland (CES) who will present community and local energy opportunities.

BIG HIT project builds on foundations laid by an initial £3 million capital investment by EMEC in a 0.5MW electrolyser and the complementary Orkney Surf ‘n’ Turf initiative, which will see production of hydrogen on the island of Eday using tidal and wind energy.

The event will take place on September 22, 2016 at the Kirkwall Town Hall.
