Overview: Andrew Smallbone will present a summary of the major technical challenges we face in delivering decarbonised heat in the UK. Using a series of case studies, he will then describe the opportunities for future net-zero compatible energy systems which can support scaled-up hydrogen and electrified heating technology.
Speaker: Andrew Smallbone is the Director of the EPSRC Network+ on the Decarbonisation of Heating and Cooling, Co-Director of the EPSRC Network+ on Hydrogen for Transportation (Network-H2), a Fellow of the Durham Energy Institute (DEI) and an Associate Professor in the Durham Department of Engineering. He leads multi-disciplinary research teams on the decarbonisation of energy, heat, transport and industry. His expertise is in techno-economic evaluation and advanced numerical modelling as well as the development of novel engineering prototypes and hardware demonstrations.
