This one-day course covers the main aspects of hydrogen as a utility, and why this is seen as a potential route to meeting the legal requirement of an 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050.
- Understanding of the fundamentals of hydrogen gas
- Knowledge of the implications of a hydrogen roll-out and the associated safety case - Understanding of the technologies associated with the creation, storage and safe use of hydrogen - Understanding of the real-world issues associated with the potential uptake of hydrogen as one means of decarbonising the UK - Understanding of the history of hydrogen development within the UK, and appreciation of key publications, literature and projects in this area - Awareness of the economic issues for a hydrogen roll-out across the UK - Understanding of some of the technical challenges for a conversion for hydrogen both upstream and downstream for a domestic property - Ability to articulate the basic key themes for hydrogen in a wide range of contexts across respective businesses.
- The environment benefits of using hydrogen as a fuel
- The principles of combustion and hydrogen specific aspects - Why different concentrations of hydrogen deserve consideration - The fundamental principles of the network conversion process from natural gas to hydrogen - The fundamental safety issues of hydrogen compared to natural gas - The fundamental principles of hydrogen production - How to store and transport hydrogen - The principle factors relating to appliance modification for conversion to hydrogen - The economics of hydrogen production and use.
Who should attend?
Technical and management staff who require a sound understanding of the issues surrounding the deployment of hydrogen. Anyone with an appreciation of the existing natural gas network and the principles of combustion.
