Energy experts agree that hydrogen will play a key role in a future zero-emission energy system.

Hydrogen fuel can be produced from renewable electricity but has all the advantages of gas. It can be conveniently stored, transported in the existing gas infrastructure, and used in all those applications that are difficult to electrify, such as high-temperature industrial heating and long-distance transport.

In this course you will get a complete overview of the hydrogen value chain and learn all about the latest developments.

The Intensive Course in Hydrogen was time very well spent, both from the perspective of an attendee as well as someone supporting one of the presenters. The programme was packed with relevant, immediately useable content that I’ve been applying to my day-to-day work since. As someone in the industry, I felt it struck a good balance between a refresher and reinforcement on information I was already at least somewhat familiar with, as well as a solid intro into a broader overview of the hydrogen arena. I’m already looking forward to the next opportunity to participate!

It has been a real pleasure to attend the Intensive Virtual Course in Hydrogen. The course successfully fulfilled all my expectations regarding both, experienced and knowledgeable lecturers and topics elaborated. It deepened my knowledge on hydrogen as well as gave me the chance to meet various professionals within the industry. It has been really exciting to hear all the different perspectives and thoughts on the future trends, coming from various lecturers whose opinions are shaped by their background and industry experience. Hydrogen as something that has been produced for decades, but never really brought to a bigger scale due to its production methods being either commercially unfeasible or environmentally damaging, finally seems to be having a bright future and leaving a zero-carbon footprint. After attending this course, seeing all of the real industry examples and even more positive future trends and developments, I feel quite optimistic, and I am highly grateful for that.
