The Energy Storage, Green Fuel and Renewable Energy Company, ‘The Pure Energy Centre’ announces that  Elizabeth Johnson MBE ( Business Development Manager) and Director of the Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association will be participating at the New Roadmap for Delivering Low Carbon Energy Targets Workshop in Glasgow.

Elizabeth will be Chairing SHFCA’s Workshop first session which will address the Policy Challenges for a Low Carbon Roadmap. Mrs Johnson has successfully chaired many events in the past such as at All Energy, SHFCA and NAHA (North Atlantic Hydrogen Association) to name a few.

Elizabeth said ‘It is always a pleasure to be asked to chair a session at SHFCA. The events are of high quality with very strong emphasis on project development, sharing experiences and learnings. I will be delighted to introduce Karen Turner from the Centre for Energy Policy, University of Strathclyde, which will be followed by Chris Stark, Scottish Government, and then Prof Andy Heyes, University of Strathclyde, followed by Archie Stoddart, Transport Scotland. Another talk will be added on opportunities for low carbon cities, where the speaker will be confirmed at a later date.

Below provides the agenda for the event:

A New Roadmap for Delivering Low Carbon Energy Targets

SHFCA-CEP Workshop. Friday 22nd January 2016, 10:00-16:00

Hosted by The Centre for Energy Policy, University of Strathclyde

James Weir Building, 75 Montrose Street, Glasgow, G1 1XJ

This event will explore links between energy and transport policy and specifically consider how Hydrogen and Fuel Cells can support delivery of low carbon targets and support economic growth?  The afternoon sessions will also consider how technical and commercial innovation can support the delivery of low carbon targets for Scotland, and how these can be linked to the development of a new Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Roadmap for the UK.
