This course is designed for engineers and professionals who are interested in working within the developing multi-billion dollar Hydrogen Industry. It will benefit people who are interested in understanding how hydrogen is produced, stored, and utilized for energy applications. It is also designed for students who are interested in this exciting industry and want to understand how we can create a sustainable future with hydrogen technologies.
The course is composed of 12 modules, covering the fundamental principles and concepts used in process design and plant design.
This course provides the fundamentals of hydrogen energy and hydrogen energy storage as fuel cell and will also provide an understanding of the innovative technologies being implemented in hydrogen industry in the recent times. Hydrogen production methods are presented, with a specific attention to electrolysis as a means for producing hydrogen from renewable energies. Hydrogen storage methods are described and the process of electrical energy generation from hydrogen by using fuel cell technology is explained.
During this course, we will discuss in detail about hydrogen economy and future trends in addition to having a broad understanding of the opportunities and challenges with hydrogen and will develop an understanding of the properties and safety aspects of hydrogen, including its application to hydrogen production plants and refueling stations.
