This course explains the needs, processes and applications of hydrogen generally and green hydrogen specifically as a natural participant in the energy revolution. Green hydrogen’s manufacture, applications, advantages and challenges are seen in the context of current hydrogen applications, both as storage and fuel. The course explains renewables’ growing need for energy storage and how the various hydrogen storage methods address this compared with other storage media. Storage via compression, cooling, metal hydrides, ammonia, carbon nanotubes and future exotic scenarios, including coal seams and reservoirs are covered. The course shows how hydrogen’s physical properties affect energy density, containment, source-to-end use efficiency and costs and create challenges for the much vaunted ‘Hydrogen Economy’ infra structure. The current highlights in research and how Oil & Gas companies stand to benefit from re-purposing their considerable resources towards hydrogen geo-research is revealed. Lastly, the class is invited to share their takeaway on the hydrogen economy, the choke point to increased renewable energy adoption and their proposal for hydrogen in their organisation or home, for discussion by the class.
