A Hydrogen Cluster? - 24 May 2011

Fuel Cell Bus LondonThe London Cleantech Cluster Event, on 24 May 2011 will focus on the theme of hydrogen and fuel cells in transport. London already has a fleet of hydrogen buses - and is introducing black cabs fuelled by hydrogen. This event will explore whether these vehicles are the precursors of a fully fledged hydrogen economy in the city - and the extent to which the UK is developing a hydrogen cluster.

Panelists will debate questions such as:

- London is already rolling out a battery electric vehicle charging infrastructure: do we need a hydrogen infrastructure for transport as well?

- What is the role of Transport for London in promoting innovative transport solutions in hydrogen and fuel cell space?

- How is the technology in hydrogen and fuel cells for transport progressing? Is it economically feasible to run a hydrogen or fuel cell vehicle?

- Which London research institutes are focusing on hydrogen and fuel cells? And do they work in unison with the London Authority?

This is an opportunity for you to discuss cleantech innovation and investment with venture capital investors and key players in the London 'hydrogen cluster'.

Take this opportunity to engage with cleantech entrepreneurs, investors, research institutes and local development agencies by attending this event.

The event will take place at the offices of our sponsor Norton Rose LLP from 6pm to 9pm and will involve a panel discussion followed by networking drinks. Don't miss out, book your place now.
