Objectives SUPERGEN UK Sustainable Hydrogen Energy Consortium (SHEC)
Abstract We will target many of the forefront fundamental multidisciplinary research challenges in production, storage, distribution and utilisation of sustainable hydrogen as an energy carrier. For example, we wish to advance our scientific understanding of the biological generation of sustainable hydrogen. A major effort will also centre on a deep understanding of physico-chemical processes associated with hydrogen sorption/desorption in a wide variety of advanced storage materials - some established,some new. We will also study the feasibility and acceptibility of sustainable hydrogen energy through a range of socio-economic projects aimed at measuring public awareness and acceptibility through to regulatory issues governing the widespread use of hydrogen. This type of broad multidisciplinary approach is key in the development of a Sustainable Hydrogen Energy Economy since socio-economic, socio-political, regulatory, environmental health and public impacts of hydrogen must be assimilatedinthe development of any scientific and technological advance
