The Hydrogen Economy seeks to replace fossil fuels with hydrogen for power generation and transport with a fuel that produces zero carbon dioxide emissions. Hydrogen is used widely in the process industries. It is often produced at a considerable scale and usually transported through pipelines from producers to users.
This course will review the current production and uses of hydrogen in the process industries, outline the technology and costs of the production of hydrogen. It will then address storage options and costs for storage as gas or liquid hydrogen. Following that, it will cover the transport of hydrogen and the unit cost of the various options over short and long distances. It will also explain the advantages of the use and productivity of hydrogen fuel used in fuel cells for stationary and vehicle applications. Finally, it will develop case studies for hydrogen versus conventional fuels in various fields of interest for a fully developed hydrogen economy.
Benefits of Attending this Workshop
By attending this course, you will be able to learn:
How hydrogen is currently produced and its cost of production
How hydrogen may be produced from renewable sources
How hydrogen is used in fuel cells
How hydrogen can be stored and the estimated storage costs
Understand possible future transport methods and their costs for an international trade – as compressed gas, as liquid or via ammonia or naphthenes
How hydrogen is transported
How to analyse the cost of hydrogen to a consumer from different production, storage and transport scenarios
Analyse how hydrogen will compete with conventional fuels
Who Should Attend
This course is strongly recommended for but not limited to:
Industry and government commercial managers, economists and engineers interested in gaining an understanding of the costs of the hydrogen economy and the relative costs of various production, storage and transport costs to local and distant markets.
Business professionals interested in developing commercial opportunities in any emerging hydrogen industry.
Research and development engineers and scientists in helping to identify key hurdles which would benefit from further R&D activities to reduce costs to the consumer.
