About Me

Jon Maddy is the Director of the University of South Wales’ Hydrogen R&D Centre at Baglan, where he leads the University’s R&D activities on electrolytic hydrogen production, hydrogen recovery and purification, hydrogen energy storage, thermochemical hydrogen production, hydrogen for transport and fuel cell applications as well as hydrogen as a decarbonisation mechanism for industry and heating. Prior to joining the University, Jon had nearly two decades of experience in the industrial gases industry, with a particular emphasis on all aspects of industrial hydrogen. This experience supports the mission of the USW Hydrogen R&D Centre to focus on mid- to later TRL hydrogen and fuel cell R&D, with a strong emphasis on collaboration with industry and government as well as academic partners.

Jon played a leading role in the creation and growth of the South Wales Industrial Cluster (SWIC), which is a collaboration of over 40 leading industrial partners. Jon is the academic lead for SWIC, supports the Welsh Government's Hydrogen activities through their Hydrogen Reference Group and is a member of the UK Government Hydrogen Advisory Council.
