How Kent is leading the way to a net-zero emissions and hydrogen future

At Kent, we are backing the UK’s ambition to lead a net-zero emissions and hydrogen future. We recognise that as an anchor institution for research and innovation in the South East, we have an important play in the race to net zero. That’s why we’re reaching out and partnering with organisations locally and nationally to solve challenges in both:

  • Supply chain governance, sustainability and resilience
  • Road and maritime transport

The Kent Business School Department for Analytics, Operations and Systems offers world class education and conducts internationally leading research in operational research, data analytics, operations management, information systems and sustainability. We are currently:

By collaborating on these projects, cultivating knowledge exchange and leading the region on its path to net zero, we aspire to:

  • Explore all aspects of the Hydrogen Fuel Supply Chain (HFSC) from governance, production and storage to transportation and distribution
  • Build prototype HFSC models based on mathematical programming and optimisation to assess different pathways, policies, and technology-driven scenarios over short, medium and long-term horizons
  • Establish a national hydrogen highway network, integrating land, sea and port
  • Green transport, airports & ports
  • Integrated and optimised energy solutions
  • Forefront of Biotechnology Development for Future Hydrogen generation
  • Future materials & sensors for storage and safety.
