    2018 conference to address safe working towards decarbonisation

    2018 conference to address safe working towards decarbonisation

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is to host a Safety Excellence in Energy conference in the new year, to address challenges in the sector.

    With support from the Institute of Gas Engineers and Managers (IGEM), the regulator wants to deliver examples of excellence, updates on recent research and highlight ongoing activities at the event in Leeds on February 15, 2018.

    Collaborative approach

    The event is aimed at professionals in the energy sector, including distributors, manufacturers, researchers, risk managers and senior engineers.

    Representatives who are responsible for research and development, health and safety and innovation will also be invited.

    The safety body says partnership working is a major strength of the UK’s health and safety system.

    Chris Flint, HSE’s Energy Division director, says: “I regularly meet with stakeholders across the Energy Sector and there is a lot of good work driving towards the UK’s 2050 decarbonisation target.”

    Britain’s 2050 target is to reduce emissions by at least 80% of the levels recorded in 1990.

    Mr Flint added: “I am delighted that at this event we will focus on enabling safe innovation to accelerate progress still further.”

    The agenda

    The event will cover the future of gas as the UK pushes to decarbonise and meet 2050 low emission targets.

    Professionals will receive guidance on asset management and best practice examples on how to transport gas safely.

    Innovation will also be part of the keynote address, discussing Power to Gas technology and how it’s contributing to decarbonising the gas grid.

    One example of this is HyDeploy, a plan aimed at using hydrogen to replace one fifth of the existing natural gas network.
