Energy Transition | Hydrogen
Green hydrogen is a carbon-free form of fuel and energy storage. It is produced through the electrolysis of water using renewable energy or low carbon power. As such it is a key means of mitigating climate change by playing an important role in the elimination of harmful green house gas emissions. By providing power system, heat and fuel services, green hydrogen can be leveraged to decarbonize vital economic sectors across the global economy. This course enables non-technical attendees to acquire sufficient awareness and understanding to support technical and commercial staff working in green hydrogen production, transport, storage and use.
