Green Hydrogen and Renewable Power-to-X Professional
The Green Hydrogen and Renewable Power-to-X Professional (PtX) Online Programme covers the most important technical and economic aspects of PtX applications such as hydrogen, heat pump technology, and e-mobility. Key PtX terminology, the current economic context, and recent developments of PtX are explained. Participants will learn about energy storage and artificial intelligence in the energy sector as well as about which set of parameters are used to assess the bankability of energy projects and understand a banker’s perspective of risks. A calculation exersise on green hydrogen generation cost is part of the programme.
Mandatory courses in the programme:
- Power-to-X (PtX): Applications and Cost Developments
- Energy Storage: Application and Technology
- Heat Pumps for Heating and Cooling: Technology and Applications
- Introduction to Hydrogen
- E-mobility for Private Transport and Charging Infrastructure: An Introduction
- Co-benefits of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Renewable Energy
- Methodology of Project Valuation
- Renewable Energy Project Finance
To supplement the learning experience, participants will have access to optional introductory courses on energy and electricity topics. These courses are not mandatory, do not contain assignments, and will not be covered in the exam. Participants new to these topics would benefit from reviewing the content in these courses.
Optional courses in the programme:
- Introduction to Electricity
- Introduction to the Solar Resource
- Planning of Large-scale Grid-connected PV Systems
- Introduction to Wind Resource
- Wind Power Planning and Measurement
Receive a reminder one week before the registration deadline.
After completing these courses, participants should be able to:
- explain the purposes and potential of the Power-to-X (PtX) concept;
- compare applications and technologies in energy storage;
- describe the opportunities hydrogen offers as an energy carrier for a sustainable energy future;
- explain and evaluate economic and environmental parameters of heat pump technologies and their applications;
- explain passenger car e-mobility and its implications for the distribution grid;
- access the role of artificial intelligence technology to improve the renewable energy sector;
- collect and prepare data required for a bankability assessment; and
- calculate relevant economic parameters of green hydrogen.
Participants who successfully pass the exam at the end of programme will receive a RENAC certificate. All other participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance if they have completed all the self-tests contained in the mandatory courses.

Albrecht Tiedemann is a director at the Renewables Academy (RENAC) AG since 2009. He manages the CapREG Program “Capacity Development on Renewable Energy and Grid Integration” for Professionals from Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Mexico, Peru and Ecuador working in the public and private energy sector. He is responsible for Blended e-Learning seminars (renewable energy and grid integration) and works as a trainer for wind energy (resource assessment, technology, hybrid wind/PV micro grids and wind farm economics) and for grid integration of renewables (balancing power and capacity credit calculation, short term power forecast for wind and solar). Mr Tiedemann moderates and chairs panel discussions, workshops, seminars and conferences.
From 2003 to 2009 he was Project Director at the German Energy Agency (dena) GmbH and there he worked as a Consultant for the German Federal Ministry of Economics & Technology, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, the European Commission and enterprises in the energy sector. Furthermore, he was the Chairman of Offshore Wind Standing Committee of the Federal government and the coastal Länder as well of the Forum Offshore Wind Energy and Nature Conservation. Mr. Tiedemann has been executively involved in the integration of renewable energies into the German energy supply system and in conducting strategic analysis for the German energy sector (German grid-study I and II until 2020 and 2030).
From 1989 to 2003 he worked as scientific assistant for the Federal Environmental Agency of Germany where he was responsible for developing environmental friendly technologies.
He holds a degree as “Engineer of Environmental Protection Technology” from the Technical University Berlin.
