|Description || The module will cover the production and storage of hydrogen as a fuel for fuel cells and for decarbonising industry and the overall energy system. The topics covered include: |
- • An Introduction to Hydrogen
- • Hydrogen production from fossil energy sources
- • Hydrogen production by the electrolysis of water at temperatures below 100ºC
- • High temperature water electrolysis
- • Hydrogen production using nuclear energy and solar thermo-chemical cycles
- • Renewable hydrogen, non-electrolysis and natural (geologic) hydrogen
- Separation and Purification of Hydrogen
- • Hydrogen Storage
- • On-board storage
- • Infrastructure, supply chain, transport, dispensing
- • Power to Gas technologies
|Learning Outcomes || By the end of the module students should be able to: |
- Present and criticise the methods, potential, benefits, and prospects of hydrogen production, storage and safety handling.
- Understand concepts that relate to Power to Gas and Power to X concepts.
- Describe the Physics, Chemistry and Engineering of hydrogen production and storage technologies and be able to apply this knowledge to moderately complex problems.
- Choose appropriate technology when faced with a moderately complex engineering design task.
- Communicate information, concepts, problems and solutions to specialists and non-specialists.
