Scottish science in action

Last term, 1st year pupils carried out an investigation into Scottish scientific achievements of the past, but here’s an example of of Scottish science in action.

Renewable energy is an important resource for Scotland: we have plenty of wind and wave and water power. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to store the energy until we need it.

A new research lab in Fife called Hydrogen Office Limited is trying to solve that problem. Their idea to is create hydrogen from water and then store the gas. When the energy is wanted, the hydrogen will power up fuel cells to generate electricity.

The Hydrogen Office are developing some of the technology needed for this process. A great example of modern science in Scotland.
