INEGI launches online course on Hydrogen Technologies and Economy

04 June 2020
The value chain, the challenges and opportunities of using renewable-based hydrogen as an energy vector are the central points of the advanced training program "Technologies and Hydrogen Economy”, the most recent addition to INEGIs advanced training offer.

With applications open and starting on September 23th, this program, which has the Smartenergy as a partner, aims to provide participants with instruments for a clear understanding of the regulatory area, business models and hydrogen value chain, with particular emphasis on its technical components, as well as opportunities and associated challenges.

Zenaida Mourão, responsible for the Energy area at INEGI and professor of the program, stresses the relevance of the theme. "Hydrogen plays an important role in the energy transition, appearing, moreover, as one of the key vectors for decarbonization in the basic strategy of the European Green Deal. It promises to play a relevant role in the optimization and decarbonisation of natural gas networks, as a vector for increasing the flexibility of energy systems, and as a transversal energy source in industry and mobility”, she says.

Hydrogen gains prominence in the Portuguese energy panorama

"The recent publication of the National Hydrogen Strategy and the announcement of several investments in research, development and demonstration projects within the scope of the hydrogen economy made clear the need to provide professionals with the knowledge necessary to enhance their intervention in the energy transition" adds Ricardo Barbosa, the programs co-coordinator.

The construction of the programmatic contents, says the specialist, involved "conversations with several national actors involved in the theme of hydrogen, whose inputs were also incorporated into the program".

It is mainly aimed at professionals in the energy sector and other sectors of activity where the energy transition may have a major impact, namely, industries with high energy consumption, the chemical industry, glass, ceramics and steel, transport companies, and managers of energy asset portfolios.

The training will take place in a virtual classroom, in live stream format, for a total of 10 sessions of 4 hours each. Distance learning will allow all participants to acquire knowledge regardless of their location, while participating in debates and obtaining feedback in real time.
