HyStorPor Final Event – Advanced Hydrogen Research in Scotland

Wednesday, 12 July 2023 09:00 - 17:00 (BST)

The final event for HyStorPor took place in Edinburgh. The project had been investigating subsurface geological storage of hydrogen in porous media. Project members presented their findings. We also discussed public perception of hydrogen and heard about public engagement initiatives. The one-day event took place in the Conference Room of the Edinburgh Climate Change Institute and online.
