Topic: Innovations in Polymer Fuel Cells & Electrolysers for Production and Use of Green Hydrogen

12:45 - 13:05

Topic: Rapid to Deploy, Hydrogen Vehicle Refuelling: Solving the chicken and egg dilemma

Topic: Non-invasive flow measurement of blended hydrogen in natural gas or pure hydrogen

Lee is an accomplished sales leader with over 25 years’ experience in international business development and commercialisation of advanced technology in the energy and transport sectors. He has experience leading AIM listed and Joint Venture start-ups through to responsibility for new technology introduction for a division of a large blue-chip multinational. Appointed Commercial Director in January 2021, Lee leads the commercial team in NanoSUN’s vision for commercial success and sustainable growth. Responsible for establishing and retaining the organisation’s position in the market, Lee works closely with customers and key stakeholders within the transport sector to ensure their hydrogen needs are met.

Hydrogen’s chemical characteristics like density and sound velocity differ immensely from typical fuel gases. These characteristics can be challenging for established flow measurement technologies. The particularly small molecular size and chemical reactivity of hydrogen requires special care regarding the implementation of flow measurement equipment into pipelines. Currently, many projects worldwide are evaluating the suitability of different flow measurement technologies for hydrogen measurements.

Denis Funk FLEXIM Global Head of Market Management for Power Generation FLEXIM Instruments UK Ltd

This presentation will be review several hydrogen application feasibility tests confirming the performance capability of FLEXIM’s non-invasive flow measurement solutions with both blended and pure hydrogen. 9
