This 2 hour course introduces the key role the gas network has to play in decarbonisation of the UK and set out how the gas network will support the UKs transition to a net zero economy by 2050. To deliver on this aim there are four themes which form the basis of the course:
The decarbonisation challenge (introduction to the challenge of heat)
What is Hydrogen and what are its properties (comparisons to natural gas)
Hydrogen and the gas network
Hydrogen in the home
The course is designed for gas engineers, to gain awareness, knowledge, and references for the key themes associated with the transition to hydrogen with the information provided in context relative to the existing Gas Network. The course is delivered by Kiwa Energy, part of Kiwa Ltd within the UK.
Kiwa Energy Hydrogen Awareness for installers training includes a tour of our Hydrogen production facility and our workshops demonstrating hydrogen appliances.
This course will provide you with knowledge and understanding on how the gas network and industry is changing to support Net Zero 2050.
The course will cover a large amount of material but will focus on giving a broad overview of the topic and include more detail on areas of relevance to the candidates. It is assumed that candidates will have some prior knowledge of the need to decarbonise the UK and will have some understanding of climate change issues. The candidates will have an understanding of what hydrogen is but not the properties of the gas and how it compares to natural gas. The candidates will understand the basics for how the gas networks operate (i.e. pressure tiers materials of construction). Have very good knowledge of domestic and commercial systems but not how these will change with the introduction of hydrogen systems.
The course will be delivered by senior consultancy staff who work in hydrogen network development projects.
