H2RC Hydrogen Symposium

Hydrogen Research Collaborative (H2RC) –

1st Hydrogen Symposium


Conceptualised by the Kenesjay Green Limited (KGL)-initiated H2RC (Hydrogen Research Collaborative), this one-day hydrogen symposium will focus on the critical challenges and opportunities surrounding the sustainable development of an expanded hydrogen economy along with the necessary key infrastructure. The University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT) and the University of the West Indies (UWI) are the first partners of the Hydrogen Research Collaborative and are working in conjunction with KGL and other partners in executing this landmark event.

The main aims of the symposium are:

  • To create an opportunity for academia, youth, private sector and public stakeholders to interact over the sharing of current research and development topics and future ideas to support the development of a sustainable regional green energy industry that also accounts for the global energy transition.
  • To bring awareness to and raise funds for the Prof Julien Endowment Fund and the H2RC -both in service of the research and development in new and upcoming energy diversification areas including and not limited to low carbon hydrogen

Date: Thursday Sept 21st, 2023

Location: UWI – St. Augustine

Professor Kenneth S. Julien Endowment Fund

In honour of Professor Julien’s vision, leadership and pioneering work, and in recognition of his national contributions that has transformed our country and continue to improve the quality of life of all its citizens even today, a number of stakeholders, led by the IEEE, have developed the Prof. Kenneth S. Julien Endowment Fund.

Limitations in funding in STEM for quality research and innovation as well as modest start-up funding have historically been a major gap locally. This Fund intends to reduce that gap and will seek to develop research and entrepreneurship in T&T, as per the following:

  • Improving the revenue generation strength in the energy sector;
  • The greening of energy industries; and
  • Using finite energy resources to propel new industries;
  • Research relating to climate change, technological innovations, food security, human capacity development and gender equality will also receive support.
