Hydrogen and Net Zero training course
Join Vice President Manuel Asali in London and Houston this coming February and November 2023.
The world’s energy transition is gathering speed and hydrogen will play a key role in it as a clean fuel and energy carrier. Hydrogen has significant potential as an energy source: it is abundant and clean and it can be used directly as a fuel or as a source for other fuels. But perhaps most importantly, hydrogen can be used in combination with renewable electricity, either producing it, storing it or being produced by it.
However, hydrogen has challenges. Most hydrogen produced today comes from fossil fuels which generate green-house gases. Clean hydrogen is possible but expensive and storing and transporting it requires investment.
Hydrogen is a chemical and an energy source and can play a role in industry decarbonisation, supporting net zero efforts in industries such as steel and petrochemicals.
Key Topics Covered
- Hydrogen sources
- The hydrogen supply chain
- Demand scenarios for conventional and new uses
- Economic assessment
- Interdependence with renewable energy
- Options for industry decarbonisation
