Energy is currently a headline topic, as global energy
demand is expected to increase by 35% before 2030.
This must be balanced with the need to tackle climate
change and to conserve conventional oil and gas by using them more
Adapting and improving current power generation technologies to
provide for growing energy demand - at comparatively low cost and
high efficiency - is fundamental to the achievement of a low carbon
Building upon our track
record in the key sectors relating to energy (power, heat and
fuel), HSE has established its own dedicated Centre
for Energy Innovation.
Our role in energy innovation
HSE has developed a strong reputation in the field of energy and
plays a major part in enabling the safe development of new and
innovative energy technologies.
Recently we've helped customers in the energy sector to
identify, assess and manage the health and safety risks of projects
relating to the hydrogen economy, nuclear decomissioning and the
use of novel fuels such as Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).
HSE's Centre for Energy Innovation
Building upon our track record in the key sectors relating to
energy (power, heat and fuel), HSE has established its own
dedicated Centre for Energy Innovation.
The role of the Centre for Energy Innovation is to further our
work in this important area, recognising that energy and its
continued availability represents perhaps the greatest challenge
facing the modern world as it strives to:
- reduce climate change by radically lowering greenhouse gas
- recover, make best use of and ultimately replace dwindling
hydrocarbon fuel reserves
- provide affordable and secure sources of energy
We shall achieve this by increasing our integration with, and
understanding of, the wider energy innovation field and its new and
