Heating and Hot water Industry -Low Carbon Forum

On the 4th December Charlie and Kat travelled to Stoke on Trent to see our new friends at the Heating and Hot water Industry -Low Carbon Forum.  The event was a great opportunity to talk to a targeted audience of people involved in gas networks and with an interest in the use of hydrogen primarily for heat.  We set the bike up n the reception and attended the conference with people coming and having a go during the lunch and coffee breaks.  For many it was the first opportunity to actually see hydrogen in real life rather than just in the presentations.

Impact:

This was really interesting as many of the people attending knew lots about Hydrogen and potentially had a positive opinion. this is to be expected at a conference on decarbonising the gas networks as hydrogen would inevitably play a large part. The people who had no opinion before interestingly mainly didn’t change their opinion though on talking to these people we discovered that they were in more than one case answering the question of how likely a hydrogen future is rather than the how do you feel about a hydrogen powered future. They expressed opinions that the conversion to hydrogen was too big a job and that they had little faith that we would be able to do it..


Clean Air Roadshow – Swansea

22-4-2017

Long day chatting to people at the #CleanAirRoadshow at Swansea.  what an Awesome day. The weather was excellent, and we had loads of people on and off the bike chatting about Hydrogen. The sun made it really difficult to see the flame but we managed to show that it was it.  We had our “I’ve been on @TheHydrogenBike” stickers fo the first time, making it super brilliant seeing people walking around with our stickers knowing that they had been on the Bike earlier. These were a great success and will become a regular part of out exhibit.  The solar panel that I use to help the cyclists did a lot of the work today and we even found that the bike would run itself when they were both connected. Bring on the solar energy.

During the day we spoke to more than 350 people and had at least 100 on the bike.

 

Thanks to everyone who showed up to talk to us and to have a go on the bike.
