The University of Manchester is nationally and internationally recognised for its expertise in the energy sector and our research is driving both the technology and thinking required to solve some of the energy challenges facing the UK.

Hydrogen is light, storable, energy-dense and produces no direct emissions of pollutants or greenhouse gases so has the potential to be a sustainable solution to challenges facing designing future cities, energy and transportation.

Amanda Lea-Langton

The University of Manchester can take a whole systems view of Hydrogen and with it having the widest breadth of research being undertaken by a single HEI in the UK is ideally placed to deal with these complex issues.
