Hydrogen Technology: Value Chain and Projects (E572)

  • TypeType: Classroom, Virtual
  • TypeDiscipline: GeoEnergy Transition, Hydrogen
  • TypeDuration: 2 days

Tutor(s)

Matt Healey: PACE CCS

Overview

This course is designed to provide the participants with a summary of the technical and engineering challenges within hydrogen energy, including production, storage and transport, in addition to associated risk and safety challenges.

Duration and Logistics

Classroom version: A 1-day in-person classroom course. An electronic copy of the manual will be provided by the tutor at the end of the course.

Virtual version: Three 2.5-hour interactive online sessions presented over 3 days (mornings in North America and afternoons in Europe), including a mix of lectures and discussion. The course manual will be provided in digital format.

Level and Audience

Advanced. This course is designed for all technical staff working on hydrogen projects with an emphasis on operations, facilities and engineering aspects.

Objectives

You will learn to:

  1. Outline the different ‘colours’ of hydrogen and how these are produced.
  2. Evaluate the technical challenges with hydrogen, including thermodynamic modelling of H2 mixtures.
  3. Review how H2 can be stored and transported safely.
  4. Outline the design specifications of H2 networks with a focus on pipelines, including material of construction and reuse of existing infrastructure.

Course Content

The course will cover the following topics and will be split into two or three sessions, depending on whether it is an in-person class or interactive on-line event.
