H100 Fife Open Events
Local residents join us at our first H100 Fife Open Events
Our team of experts met guests at Buckhaven Community Education Centre on 6 and 7 October to answer their questions and tell them more about getting involved in the project.
While enjoying H100 cupcakes from a local bakery, guests met with Construction Managers Maxime Biret and James Carroll. They learned all about how we’re producing hydrogen in Fife Energy Park and how we’re delivering it to homes using a new hydrogen network.
They also met our project partners Warmworks to find out about what to expect inside their homes after registering for H100 Fife. Members of Fife Council were there to support us too, as were community-led charity Greener Kirkcaldy who provide fuel poverty and energy advice.
“It’s been great to speak to people in the local community to encourage lots of fantastic people to sign up. Everyone we’ve met is excited about hydrogen and the fact that this is a world-first happening in their home town.”
Eilidh Graham, H100 Fife Marketing Manager
To keep the kids, and some of adults, busy we invited our partners Bright Green Hydrogen along. They’re working with us to develop lessons teaching local young people about hydrogen and helping them understand the key role their community is playing in decarbonisation. The lessons are aimed at children aged 9-12 and are being rolled out across eight primary schools in Fife.
Bill from Bright Green Hydrogen team demonstrated how green hydrogen can we produced using a small-scale model. The kids who came along watched science in action, as a mini electrolyser powered by a fan generated renewable hydrogen to light up a bulb.
