NEW COURSE: Hydrogen - An Evolving Economy: VIRTUAL DELIVERY

This workshop is designed to explore where the hydrogen economy is and where it could be headed. With Net Zero commitments being made across the globe, what is it that hydrogen offers that other energy sources can't, but what are the hurdles the sector needs to overcome for wider implementation.

Topics explored during the course include the properties of hydrogen and how they hold out both promises and challenges. You will find out how hydrogen can be produced, stored, transported and put to useful work. The course explores the current and potential end-use applications for hydrogen, the nature of today's existing hydrogen economy and the very different projected future hydrogen economy of 2030 and beyond.

Start Times Days 1 - 4: 09.00 London - 12.00 Dubai - 16.00 Singapore
End Times Days 1 - 4: 12.00 London - 15.00 Dubai - 19.00 Singapore

This virtual course is one of the ICE Education LIVE programs. We provide three phases to the course:
1. Pre-course: Access to the ICE Education learning platform for on-demand primer content.
2. Live Virtual Sessions: Trainer led live video sessions (as per the outline below). These are short focused sessions with practical activity and interaction throughout.
3. Post-course: On-demand content remains available and an optional live video clinic session is scheduled for one week post course for any learning points you'd like to revisit.
All course payments must be received one day prior to the start date

Your learning from the class will be reinforced and extended by participation in case studies and discussion exercises in small groups, and by quiz and poll questions designed to get you thinking about issues such as the scale of existing and planned hydrogen use.
