Safety and Loss Prevention

Webinar: Hydrogen - Transport Fuel and the Gas Network

Webinar: Hydrogen - Transport Fuel and the Gas Network
  • Date From 16th June 2021
  • Date To 16th June 2021
  • Price Free of charge, open to all.
  • Location Online: 08:00 BST. Duration: 2 hours.


Hydrogen is a key area of growth within the energy industry. This webinar series aims to raise awareness, and prompt debate, focusing on process safety management as a key area of concern for all projects, particularly when they are in growth areas and involve new technology and processes.

This second webinar in the series will focus on the use of H2 in the gas network and use of H2 as a transport fuel both in current demand and future potential.


Tommy Isaac, Principal Engineer, Progressive Energy & HyDeploy

The safety case for hydrogen distribution and use

An award winning dual Chartered chemical and mechanical engineer with consulting, operational and project delivery experience. Tommy began his career in nuclear power before moving into an operational role within a refinery and has since been developing low-carbon projects since 2017.

Since joining Progressive Energy he has been project managing HyDeploy through the UK's first hydrogen approval by the HSE. Tommy also provides technical and strategic consulting to energy networks, through Whole Systems Analysis. Tommy is a member of various parliamentary advisory groups on energy, as well as a committee member with BSI, IChemE and IGEM.

Ian McCluskey, Head of Technical Services & Policy, IGEM

The Hydrogen Knowledge Centre, and developing policies for the network becoming hydrogen ready

Ian oversees the management and governance of the Hydrogen Knowledge Centre; working with IGEM's Technical Coordinating Committee and Hydrogen Committee to ensure robust policies and processes are in place to maintain a high quality repository of hydrogen resources.

Richard Riley, Element Energy

The challenges of delivering hydrogen to support heavy duty vehicle decarbonisation

Richard has worked in the transport team at Element Energy since completing his PhD in transport decarbonisation at the University of Leeds in 2016. Richard now leads Element Energy’s work on the decarbonisation of heavy-duty vehicles with extensive expertise in freight movements, freight decarbonisation options and decarbonisation pathways. Richard has also led a number of studies looking at pathways to meet net-zero targets, which has given him a detailed knowledge of the technical and behavioural changes needed over the next 30 years.
