Hydrogen and its applications not only represent a robust, feasible and flexible response to the energy crisis, but decarbonising the economy, industry, transportation system, aviation and maritime sectors may tackle the very roots of the global climate crisis.

The shift to hydrogen will not only be a smooth continuous transformation process over the following decades but will also give impetus to a fundamental and disruptive energy transition within a short period of time. But what is hydrogen actually and how can it be produced? How can hydrogen contribute to a cleaner energy system? What is the hydrogen economy? And finally, how can we harvest the potential benefits of emerging technology?

This course was written to address these questions and explain the major components of hydrogen as emerging future energy technology.

The topics covered are:

  • The element hydrogen (H2)
  • Types of hydrogen applications
  • Hydrogen generation and fuel cells
  • Hydrogen infrastructure
  • System integration / sector coupling
  • The cost of hydrogen
  • International strategies and roadmaps
