Renewable Energy, Carbon Capture, Hydrogen & ESG > Giga-Scale Pathways For Low-Carbon Hydrogen – Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

Hydrogen production will scale up by several orders of magnitude in the coming decades. Electrolysers are currently operating at 10 to 20MW and there are many plans announced for GW schemes. Similar scaleup leaps are proposed for thermal hydrogen production processes such as methane pyrolysis. Blue hydrogen production on steam methane reformers and autothermal reformers are already touching the GW scale and new projects of this size have also been announced.

This Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course will explain the current and proposed low-carbon Giga-scale hydrogen production technologies such as electrolysis, coal gasification, SMR, ATR, POx and pyrolysis. The best-fit criteria to apply each of these technologies will be discussed. Greenhouse gas emissions profiles will also be considered.

Spotting the right technologies early can mean the difference between a good and an excellent project and can help to achieve net-zero ambitions. If you are investing in the hydrogen economy or considering technologies to implement, thinking through the pros and cons of various options will be fundamental to your decision making. This VILT course will provide deep insights to support that process.

Course content at a glance

  1. Electrolysis and biomass routes to green hydrogen
  2. Decarbonisation of fossil-fuel routes to low-carbon hydrogen
  3. International green, blue and turquoise hydrogen projects
  4. Differences between new low-carbon hydrogen production facilities and decarbonisation retrofits to existing facilities

Upon completion of this VILT course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the range of low-carbon hydrogen production technologies
  • Appreciate the feedstock requirements and carbon management strategies for each technology
  • Focus on one or two technology options that are most likely to be optimal from a wide range of possible choices for specific geographic locations
  • Be familiar with some of the main technology providers for GW scale low carbon hydrogen production equipment
  • Learn how value stacking and CCS can improve the business case
  • Feel confident to GW scale, low-carbon hydrogen production with project developers, investors, engineers, management, executives and other stakeholders

Investors, project developers, process engineers, and operations management teams involved in or considering hydrogen production sites as well as discipline and project engineers from EPC contractors will benefit from this VILT course.

Moreover, members of the organisation tasked with greenhouse gas emissions reduction and other environmental and operational transformation issues will find that the VILT course lays a solid foundation for their work towards decarbonisation in the coming years.

The VILT course will be delivered online in 2 half-day sessions comprising 4 hours per day, including time for lectures, discussion, quizzes and short classroom exercises.

Your expert course leader is the founder and managing director of an energy transition consultancy in Germany. His work focuses on decarbonisation and hydrogen is a fundamental pillar of his consulting practice. His hands-on hydrogen expertise extends to the full length of the value chain from production, purification, distribution, and storage through to utilisation.

With a background in industrial gases, including 27 years at BOC Gases, The BOC Group and Linde Gas, he has intimate knowledge of hydrogen from commercial, technical, operational and safety perspectives. He served 14 years as a global business leader in these FTSE100 and DAX30 companies and had the opportunity to interact with people, businesses, and operations around the world.

As a member of the H2 View and gasworld editorial advisory boards, he advises the direction of editorial content for these two leading international publications. His writing often covers sustainable hydrogen production technologies.

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.

powerEDGE has made themselves relevant in catering the knowledge demands for the current and future trends. I attended my first training with powerEDGE on coal technology, and now they're focusing more on green and sustainable source of energy in supporting the green agenda. Good job in staying relevant!
