Course objectives – is this for you?
Many believe that hydrogen is set to be transformative in driving ‘net zero’ decarbonisation pathways, creating huge opportunities for players across a number of industry segments as diverse as renewable power to natural gas, transport to steel manufacturing.
Yet hydrogen is also a topic where it can prove hard to find independent information, given the diversity of opinions and interests that it covers. Competition will be fierce both within the hydrogen sector itself – regarding methods of production, for example – and between hydrogen and competing visions of the ‘clean’ economies of the future.
Through this course you will gain a clear and hype-free perspective on both the opportunities that hydrogen presents, with the focus firmly on clean hydrogen, and on the real challenges and barriers that it faces. This perspective will journey from production through to end-use demand, clearly explaining relevant technologies and terminologies and identifying which aspects of the sector matter most, why they matter, and where they will differ.
The course is presented throughout in language accessible to business and commercially-focused people, including business developers and investors, and illustrated with up-to-the-minute examples, benchmarks and best practices from around the world.
Session 1: Hydrogen essentials: numbers, market drivers and context
A business-person's introduction to the key aspects of the clean hydrogen market which really matter, including: its current market context, the reasons behind the growth forecasts, the case for hydrogen scepticism, the essential numbers to have in mind.
Session 2: Sources of demand for hydrogen
An essential review of the current and potential future sources of demand for hydrogen, illustrated with examples from around the world, and discussed in the context of competition, limitations and risks, not just opportunities.
Session 3: Hydrogen supply options
A clear description, accessible to non-engineers, of the options to produce hydrogen in a 'clean' manner (and the market status of these options), from both renewable and hydrocarbon energy inputs. Plus a discussion of the variables that contribute to production costs and the trends in hydrogen production economics.
Session 4: Storing and moving hydrogen
A critical review of the options for storing hydrogen and getting it from sources of supply to end-use customers, including the practical limits to hydrogen as a fuel, conversion to derivative fuels and carriers, supply chain energy inefficiencies, large-scale storage options and more.
Session 5: Hydrogen policy and project development
A discussion of the policy environments, mechanisms and trends that are influencing the business cases for hydrogen, along with a guide to some of the key practical project development and stakeholder issues which must be taken into account in order to drive growth.
