KTN's online platform helps you to make the connections you need


The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) has refreshed its online platform to intelligently connect you to relevant events, funding, thought pieces and specialist staff to help your business innovate and grow.

You can discover content using your area of interest, from sustainability to transport; from space to health – all major UK economic sectors are covered. Once you have selected your interests, using our intelligent tagging system, we will then display rich and relevant content related to your area, often from surprising sources.

An example might be new satellite technology from the space sector that is applicable in the agri-food sector. KTN-UK.co.uk will help you form these unusual and valuable connections.

All content on the platform has been carefully curated by our team of innovation specialists – not by an automated algorithm – so you can be confident that KTN is connecting you to the most relevant cutting-edge information.


The move also marks a closer alignment with our main funder, Innovate UK , with the website branding making a clear visual link. Knowledge Transfer Network is Innovate UK's innovation network partner, and also works with other funders to provide innovation networking services and fulfil our mission to drive UK growth.

We link new ideas and opportunities with expertise, markets and finance through our network of businesses, universities, funders and investors. From agri-food to autonomous systems and from energy to design, KTN combines expertise in all sectors with the ability to cross boundaries. Connecting with KTN can lead to potential partners, horizon-expanding events and innovation insights relevant to your needs.

The challenge of intermittency – will hydrogen deliver? - Register now for this free event.

Monday, 28th June, Gastec at CRE Ltd. Cheltenham, England


As the level of renewables on the electricity grid increases, bridging the gap between the supply and demand becomes increasingly challenging. One possible solution is to use surplus renewable electricity for the production of hydrogen. This could then be transformed back into electricity when demand is high, or be used to fuel vehicles. This vision of the future raises a number of questions: how does hydrogen perform compared to other energy storage options; what are efficiencies and costs, and how are they likely to evolve over the next few years; where will hydrogen be produced and how will it be distributed to the point of use; and finally, how have the systems installed to date performed?


The Energy Generation and Supply Knowledge Transfer Network, in collaboration with the Transport KTN, would like to invite you to join us for an event which will give you the opportunity to answer these and many other questions related to integration of hydrogen systems with renewables in the UK and Europe.


By attending the event you will:

*  Build an understanding of the potential for hydrogen to address renewable intermittency;

*  Learn about the market for hydrogen as an energy store, in both stationary and transport applications at different scales;

*  Gain insight into the barriers and drivers for investment in hydrogen hybrid systems, including issues of managing daily and seasonal electricity demand

*  Explore recent UK and European case studies, including domestic hydrogen generation for vehicles refuelling, the first hydrogen station in Greenland and others

*  Update on the development of hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in the UK; 


Speakers will include representatives from:

*  ITM-Power

*  PURE Energy Centre

*  Gastec at CRE Ltd.

*  Bryte-Energy Ltd.

*  Rosklide University, Denmark

*  H2 Logic, Denmark

*  Statoil, Norway


This event is free to attend. If you would like to join us, please register at http://willhydrogendeliver.eventbrite.com/ . Please be aware places are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis. Admission will be restricted to registered delegates only. A detailed agenda for the day, together with directions to the venue, will be circulated to registered attendees shortly.


If you are not already a member of the Energy Generation and Supply or Transport KTN, please register here This will allow you to access the multiple benefits of the KTN membership, including workshops and networking events, insights into new funding opportunities and key developments across the landscape and advisory services aimed at facilitating business and technological success. Please make sure you become a member of the fuel cell and hydrogen priority group of the Energy Generation and Supply KTN. This will ensure that you receive updates on future fuel cell and hydrogen events and can access all articles and reports on our pages. Please note that the outputs from this event will be disseminated via the EG&S KTN website.
