Chemistry: Toward A Hydrogen Economy With Dr Joseph Wright From University of East Anglia

16th June 2022 @ 15:35 - 16:20



Moving away from fossil fuels is well established as important in addressing our future energy needs. Not only do new approaches offer ways to address climate change, but they also have the potential to address a range of social and economic issues which stem from our over-reliance on fossil fuels.

In this session, we will look at what fuels are, why they are important and why hydrogen gas is one of the most important replacements for fossil fuels. Students will be able to build on their existing knowledge of both the science of fuels and how we use them, and will have the opportunity to suggest their own solutions to the challenges we face.


Dr Joseph Wright is Associate Professor in Energy Materials in the School of Chemistry at University of East Anglia.

Lecturer Profile (Please Click): Dr Joseph Wright


Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, the session will not be recorded but resources, including the slides, will be shared afterwards where available.



Suitable for: Year 12 and 13 students (and equivalent). This session is delivered by UEA’s School of Chemistry but, as well as Chemistry students, it will have a broader STEM relevance and may also interest students from Economics and Geography, for example.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: No preparation or pre-reading is required although you may wish to consider the proposed subject area and related questions you might like to ask.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.

Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. If you would like to take part in this event, please register your interest using the link to the registration form below:
