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.

Learning Objectives

  • Understanding industrial electrolysis processes

  • Capacity of sizing an electrolyzer

  • Capacity of sizing the storage system

  • Understanding electricity generation through the use of fuel cells

  • Ability to select and size a fuel cell.
