Cranfield University's state-of-the-art hydrogen pilot plant, HyPER, has scooped a prestigious accolade at the Hydrogen Awards 2023. HyPER (Bulk Hydrogen Production by Sorbent Enhanced Steam Reforming) is testing an innovative hydrogen production technology that substantially reduces greenhouse gas emissions. It will examine the potential for low-carbon hydrogen to be the clean fuel of the future and is led by Dr Peter Clough, Senior Lecturer in Energy Engineering.The Hydrogen awards recognise outstanding research and innovation in hydrogen at universities across the UK and at the British Geological Survey. Cranfield University achieved the honour in the Academic Excellence in Hydrogen Research and Innovation category.Cranfield University’s work in hydrogen spans all aspects of generating, storing and using the fuel, with research covering many sectors including aerospace, energy, marine and automotive.
