Understand the real-world issues associated with the uptake of hydrogen for decarbonising energy
Understand the economic issues for a hydrogen roll out across the UK
The ability to articulate the key technical themes for hydrogen across a wide range of contexts and stakeholders
Clearly, hydrogen has a pivotal role in the UK's energy strategy. Technical and management staff in related industries need a sound understanding of the issues surrounding its deployment. This training course is designed to meet that requirement. The course covers the main aspects of hydrogen as a utility, and why this is seen as a potential route to meeting net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
This IGEM-accredited Hydrogen and the Natural Gas Network extended course is designed for those with an understanding of the existing natural gas network and the principles of combustion, who need a more detailed understanding of hydrogen production, pipelines, hydrogen usage and safety issues. This course is usually delivered to single organisations, where we prepare a bespoke syllabus to address the requirements of the individual organisation.
Areas that will be covered include:
The course covers key themes relevant to Hydrogen and the UK Natural Gas Network:
Environmental context of hydrogen
Legal considerations for the use of hydrogen as a utility
Safety issues of hydrogen
Storage of hydrogen
Transportation of hydrogen
Potential end-use conversion to hydrogen
Economic and social factors
Understanding of the fundamentals of hydrogen gas;
The implications of a hydrogen roll-out and the associated safety case;
The technologies associated with the production, storage, and safe use of hydrogen;
Attendees will be able to understand the real-world issues associated with the potential uptake of hydrogen as one means of decarbonising the UK and wider Europe;
Understanding of the history of hydrogen development within the UK;
Understanding of the economic issues for a hydrogen roll out across the UK;
Post course, attendees will have an ability to articulate the key technical themes for hydrogen across a wide range of contexts and stakeholders in relation to the differences between natural gas and hydrogen and business needs.
Why attend the Hydrogen and the Natural Gas Network extended course?
Hydrogen is currently receiving considerable governmental attention, and yet many people in the industry know little about its properties and complexities. Some of the typical questions that are being asked will be answered are:
If hydrogen only has a third of the calorific value of natural gas won’t the pipes have to be three times larger and cost three times more?
How can it be odorised?
Doesn’t it leak from the pipes?
Modifying a boiler is surely very expensive? Can we manufacture dual-fuel boilers?
Attendance at this course will equip you with the facts to answer these and many more questions, and thereby enable you to concentrate on the real unknowns.
The course will be delivered by two Kiwa Technical Trainers; Mark Crowther, Associate Director, Hydrogen for Kiwa UK, and Paul McLaughlin, Consultancy Team Lead Kiwa Energy. The course has been designed for delivery by live presentations, which gives an interactive experience and allows delegates to concentrate on the issues that they see as most relevant.
This course will be delivered in our dedicated Kiwa Training Suite. Candidates will be able to tour our hydrogen production plant, hydrogen storage, odorisation, and pipeline infrastructure, as well as our hydrogen laboratory. This unique facility will enable in depth discussion of the safety aspects of hydrogen production, distribution, and use. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org
Course cost is £450 per candidate based on a booking of 10 candidates. Price does not include VAT.
