Course Overview

The course provides the fundamentals of the hydrogen technology, using it as a way to store energy. Hydrogen production methods are presented, but more special attention is paid to electrolysis as a mean for producing hydrogen from renewable energies. Hydrogen storage methods are described and it is explained process of electrical energy generation from hydrogen by using fuel cell technology. Below are details of the approximate weekly dedication of each lesson in hours, taking into account the visualization of the videos and the realization of the quizzes associated with each unit.
