Hydrogen and its applications not only represent a robust, feasible and flexible response to the energy crisis, but the decarbonisation of the economy resulting from its use also has the potential to 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 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 this emerging technology?

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

The topics covered are:

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

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • explain the basic components of a hydrogen-based energy system and its respective infrastructure;
  • describe the current uses of hydrogen, its production methods, and its infrastructure requirements;
  • describe the opportunities and limits of hydrogen as an energy carrier and technology and its potential contribution to sustainable energy systems in the future; and
  • understand the current status of hydrogen policies in the international arena.

This course is suitable for those whom:

  • would like a short overview of the current use of hydrogen, its production technologies, infrastructure and storage; or
  • want to know how to include hydrogen in roadmaps and strategies for a sustainable energy supply.
