World’s First Hydrogen Energy Course Launched by the Renewable Energy Institute

The Renewable Energy Institute, award-winning for continuous work on knowledge-sharing and professional training in renewable energy worldwide, launched the first Accredited Hydrogen Energy course in 2021. This course, which has been amongst the most popular of the REI courses, provides participants from all over the world with the opportunity to study the latest knowledge in the rapidly growing hydrogen industry at their own pace, across all time zones.

Due to the demand for hydrogen energy training and the fast-paced advancements in the sector, the REI have now launched a follow on course titled Developing Hydrogen Energy Projects. This advanced training course will provide participants with additional expert information on how to effectively manage a hydrogen energy project; both from a technical and financial perspective.

The Accredited Hydrogen Energy course, which is included in the 12-15 course Master in Renewable Energy Award, and the Hydrogen Energy Consultant Expert Certificate (3 courses), can also be studied as a standalone course online On-demand or in the Live Virtual Classroom. Participants from organisations such as EDF Energy, Ministry of Defence and Subsea 7 have attended the course in the Live Virtual Classroom, achieving the internationally recognised Galileo Master Certificate (GMC). The REI provide bespoke corporate and group training, please contact us for a quotation.

Green hydrogen energy has been identified as one of the solutions to meeting the zero-emissions target outlined in the Paris Agreement. Governments worldwide are now including hydrogen as part of their strategies to reduce greenhouse emissions, and the energy source is also highlighted as a priority in the European Green Deal to achieve a sustainable circular economy.

Why Hydrogen Energy?

At this critical point in time, where considerable measures must be taken to stop the climate crisis from developing further, it is essential to explore all options to substitute fossil fuels. Sustainable hydrogen energy has the qualities to serve as a complement to renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and wave and hydro power to cover the world’s energy consumption and ensure the development of global climate justice.

The Renewable Energy Institute, collaborating closely with United Nations (UNEP) to promote best practice in renewable energy and energy efficiency, is pleased to confirm that the interest among individuals and companies to upskill in renewable energy continues to increase. Companies and organisations such as Google, the World Bank, Ford Motor Company, and many more have chosen to study the Renewable Energy Institute’s accredited courses and achieve the Galileo Master Certificate (GMC). The Institute is also delighted to see many previous GMC achievers return to study more courses to expand their existing knowledge. The Hydrogen Energy course continues to be of exceptional high demand by professionals across all sectors.

Expertise in Hydrogen Energy is Needed

While hydrogen energy technology has been used for many years, it is only in the last 20 years that interest for the technology has become more widespread. There are many advantages of green hydrogen energy, ranging from long storage capabilities to being highly transportable. Sustainable hydrogen has the potential to decarbonise industrial energy use and improve energy efficiency in buildings. Vehicles driven by hydrogen fuel cells have also been highlighted as a complement to Electric Vehicles to help decarbonise transportation.

The Renewable Energy Institute recognised a knowledge gap in the industry regarding how to implement sustainable hydrogen on a wider scale, taking into consideration technological, logistical, financial, and legislative aspects. The Institute introduced the Accredited Hydrogen Energy course in order to bridge this gap and provide companies and organisations training by a hydrogen energy expert with many years’ of experience in the field. The Hydrogen Energy course gives participants a broad perspective of how to approach hydrogen energy in order to successfully plan new projects which will help the transition to a zero carbon future. All courses are continuously updated and relevant to the industry now, in 2023.
