Course objectives – is this for you?


This course is intended for those seeking a time-effective, wide-ranging and independent perspective on opportunities within the rapidly growing market for clean hydrogen production from renewable power.


You will leave with a clearly explained, business-focused perspective on electrolysis technology and its cost determinants. You want to separate what is actually happening in the market from some of the headlines and hype, and to identify credible near-term opportunities for your business. You want to evaluate barriers to longer-term scalability along with project planning and delivery considerations, illustrated by examples taken from a global perspective.



Session 1: Electrolysis (technologies & economics)


A clear explainer, for business people, of green hydrogen production (electrolysis) technologies and the performance and economic metrics that matter.


A business person’s guide to electrolysis: what you need to know

  • Inputs, outputs and key performance metrics

  • Comparing and contrasting competing electrolysis solutions

  • The current status and future trends of electrolyser technologies

  • Current product examples (what’s within real specification data sheets)

  • Technology selection criteria: what are the key considerations?


Examining the economics of green hydrogen production

  • Reviewing and understanding the wide range of electrolysis cost data

  • Balance of system, operational and other cost contributions

  • Calculating the cost of hydrogen production (a levelized cost approach)

  • Sensitivity analysis: which variables are most important for green hydrogen costs?

  • Forecast future cost reductions – and how they can be achieved



Session 2: Reviewing current and upcoming green hydrogen project examples


Illustrated with examples from around the world, an up-to-the-minute briefing of where and why green hydrogen production is being deployed.


Appraising the market opportunities for green hydrogen

  • Green hydrogen today and targets and forecasts for growth over the next decade

  • Trends in the scale of individual projects

  • Opportunities for meeting the spectrum of potential hydrogen end-use applications


Large-scale and industrial green hydrogen

  • Current hydrogen applications: cleaning up refining and ammonia production

  • New industrial opportunities, including steel, chemicals and oil & gas operations

  • Proposals targeting gigawatt-scale production and international trade


Green hydrogen as an enabler in constrained energy systems

  • Integrations with renewable power, including microgrids

  • Onsite hydrogen production, including filling stations

  • Electrolysis and hydrogen production to provide power system flexibility benefits



Session 3: Project deployment and business case drivers


Successful green hydrogen projects will be built upon a solid appreciation of the competitive, economic and policy variables impacting the business case, along with knowledge of the practical deployment hurdles to be overcome.


Developing the green hydrogen business case

  • The key variables in a green hydrogen business plan (cutting through the complexity)

  • Market entry and assessment considerations

  • Bold targets vs. specific supports: where is policy at present?

  • Evaluating production costs, supply chain costs and market value: the competitive landscape facing green hydrogen

  • Revenue stacking and multiple business streams: opportunities to enhance the economics of green hydrogen


Delivering green hydrogen projects

  • The essential practical development and deployment considerations; including land, grid connectivity, safety, supply chain complexity and more

  • Access to electricity: understanding the essential issues around renewable power as a supply (including variability)

  • Comparing the ‘deliverability’ of competing clean hydrogen solutions (in particular ‘green’ vs ‘blue’)

  • Challenges to the scalability of green hydrogen to meet growth targets and expectations

  • Closing summary: assessing near term business opportunities and long-term growth strategies
