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.

This interactive course, consisting of 2 morning sessions (from 09:00 to 13:00 CET time), provides a complete and in-depth overview of the hydrogen value chain: production, distribution, storage and use of hydrogen as an energy carrier.

How you benefit

  • In-depth knowledge on key element in energy transition
  • Connect online with experts and peers
  • With case study and group assignment
