This course will review the current methods and challenges associated with production, delivery, storage, and use of hydrogen as a transportation fuel. Additionally, this course provides an in-depth review of fuel cells – a device that can convert hydrogen into electricity – and how they operate.
Hydrogen holds the potential to provide clean, safe, affordable, and secure energy from abundant domestic resources. However, there are several technical challenges to the commercialization and widespread use of hydrogen as an energy carrier. The great promise of hydrogen as a transportation fuel prompts the need for engineers and government officials with professional engineering licenses to be well-informed about hydrogen in order to advance the commercial development of hydrogen production, delivery, storage, and use.
This course is based entirely on Hydrogen & Our Energy Future, published by the U.S. Department of Energy Hydrogen Program.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
