A Research and Innovation Network+
The Network for Hydrogen Transportation (Network-H2) has been set-up by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) to maximise the impact of UK-funded research and innovation.
It is formed by a partnership between Durham University, Newcastle University, Advanced Propulsion Centre, Energy Systems Catapult, UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, UK Department for Transport, Connected Places Catapult, and the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association.
Starting from October 2019, we aim to take a leadership role across the energy, marine, on-road, rail and aviation sectors in advancing the rapidly advancing hydrogen-enabled transport sector by focusing on eight cross-cutting themes.
- The whole transport/energy system
- Pathways to sustainable hydrogen production and distribution
- Compact and lightweight on-board storage
- Compact and lightweight hydrogen energy conversion devices
- Lightweight electrified powertrains
- Hydrogen compatible materials and safety
- Multi-modal transport, logistics and autonomy.
- Policy, economics and societal impacts
