DEI Seminar Series: The potential of hydrogen powered transport and its key technologies

1:00pm to 2:00pm, E102, Engineering, Dr Andrew Smallbone

The transport sector needs to deliver solutions for zero tailpipe emissions which work for all the transport modes. As it stands, the day-to-day requirements of the marine, aviation, railways, heavy-duty and off-road vehicle operators are more compatible with the opportunities offered by hydrogen than possible from battery electric vehicles.

Energy Society and Practices: DEI Short course

10:30am to 1:00pm, Penthouse, Collingwood College, Durham University, Various

A unique opportunity to access training directly from experts across Durham University and the Energy Sector. Available to people within and outside Durham University.

This four and a half day course brings together leading experts to discuss how to understand energy in society through ideas about energy practices and other theoretical frameworks. From material culture studies to practice theory, from economics to visual studies, we explore the analyses available in the social science and humanities that help us make sense of energy and change the way we organize energy practices.
