The 5th SHFCA annual conference will be held over two days on the 25th and 26th September 2013 in Edinburgh. This conference will be located at the prestigious venue of Victoria Quay, by kind permission of HyER member Transport Scotland and the Scottish Government. Both days will offer delegates the opportunity to hear from a very strong line-up of speakers on state of the art technical developments, as well as the policies and practical measures that will allow the timely deployment of hydrogen and fuel cells.
The 2013 Scottish Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Conference will consider the key challenges and opportunities for taking hydrogen and fuel cell technologies and products into rapidly growing markets for low carbon consumer products, including the expected deployment of fuel cell electric vehicles from 2015. Fuel cells are already being used commercially in very efficient combined heat and power (CHP) systems, and micro-CHP fuel cell systems for domestic installation are also being rolled out into consumer markets. This conference will bring together prominent speakers from Scotland, UK, and Europe. The opening plenary speech will be by Fergus Ewing MSP, Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism.
