EPP Success for Student Julia

Category : Education , Latest News

Julia our Environmental Placement Programme (EPP) Student has successfully finished her placement.

Throughout May and June, we have been lucky to have an EPP student Julia working with us. Julia provided support to the Education team, through designing games and delivering workshops. She also assisted with the hydrogen/electric van programme, instructing maintenance and ensuring vans were fully charged. Her last task, to organise printer recycling was actually more difficult than anyone of us had thought! However, Julia persevered and our old technology is away to be recycled/reused.

Whilst with us, Julia discovered she had gained a 2:1 for her degree and she recently had her graduation day. We have no doubt that Julia has a bright future ahead of her.

Japan 2019

Maja recently attended the 2019 World Hydrogen Technologies Convention in Japan. Here she was able to present her findings as part of her PhD with BGH and the University of Edinburgh.

She shared her techno-economic modelling for energy systems (that include hydrogen) with other professionals in the industry. This experience has been invaluable to Maja, and what was even better was that all feedback was very positive!

If you would like to learn more about Maja’s studies, then please get in touch.
