Dr Emilia Pecheva, SIN officer for Bulgaria and Romania, British Embassy Bucharest
UK Science and Innovation Network in Bulgaria and Romania invites you to a hybrid conference on the role of hydrogen and energy from waste in energy transition. We will showcase the UK’s strategies, S&I and business capability, as well as regional efforts and needs for collaboration.
The main step towards energy transition and the creation of a carbon-neutral society is the implementation of renewable energy sources as replacements for fossil fuels. As various scientists are stressing the gravity of climate change effects that are reaching the physical environment, ecosystems, and humanity in general, concern for the future is becoming the main global topic. Hydrogen technologies are recognised to be the most promising choice. Multiple applications are studied but their current deployment is not yet on the large-scale implementation level. The utilisation of hydrogen’s immense ecological potential is to be expected in the next two decades. New innovative solutions concerning hydrogen production, storage, distribution and usage are permeating all industry sectors. Increasing progress in hydrogen technology instigated nations to incorporate hydrogen in their energy legislations and national development plans, which resulted in numerous national hydrogen/decarbonisation strategies.
The UK’s geography, geology, infrastructure, innovation and expertise make it well suited to rapidly developing a low carbon hydrogen economy, with secure economic opportunities.
During this conference experts from the UK government, academic and business fields will share the recent developments in legislation and technology around UK’s emerging decarbonisation economy with their counterparts in Bulgaria and Romania.
