To tackle climate change, we need to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and the carbon dioxide they emit. Energy can be produced from renewable sources such as wind, solar and hydroelectric power. We can also use hydrogen as an alternative energy source for things such as heating homes, transport, and steel manufacturing.

Many believe that hydrogen has the potential to revolutionise delivering clean and sustainable energy, releasing only water vapour as its waste product; this produces huge opportunities in delivering ‘net zero’ decarbonisation across a range of sectors and could play a crucial role in tackling climate change.

The IMechE can provide an independent and comprehensive introduction to hydrogen supply chains, wind energy, energy storage, carbon capture and much more, as well as providing an overview of the opportunities and risks that are present in these topics.

Engineering a Net Zero Energy System Report

Engineering a Net Zero Energy System

In this report, former IMechE President, Peter Flinn, investigates the challenges of decarbonisation and what the engineering community should be doing to overcome them.

Resource guides


Driving the growth of low carbon hydrogen could deliver support for up to 8,000 jobs by 2030, potentially unlocking up to 100,000 jobs by 2050 in a high hydrogen net zero scenario [and attract] over £4 billion of private investment in the period up to 2030.
