Hydrogen Safety - TeacHy

Energy system and storage

The Module is focused on the "Energy system and storage" and aims to introduce energy system and energy storage to students and provide them with the basic science behind the processes involved. This will be useful for both students progressing into the area of energy generation/storage, as well as those aiming at getting involved in the hydrogen energy field itself, for instance by taking up a PhD in the Doctoral Training School for FCH.

By the end of the module students should be able to:

  • present and criticise the methods, potential, benefits, and prospects of energy system and storage;
  • understanding concepts that relate to energy vectors concepts;
  • describe the Physics, Chemistry and Engineering of energy storage technologies and be able to apply this knowledge to moderately complex problems;
  • be able to choose appropriate technology when faced with a moderately complex engineering design task;
  • communicate information, concepts, problems and solutions to specialists and non-specialists.

The module consists of 14 lectures:

Lecture 1: The actual energy system, introduction

Lecture 2: Fossil and nuclear energy production

Lecture 3: Renewable energy

Lecture 4: Energy vectors/carriers

Lecture 5: Hydrogen as energy vector/carrier, energetic properties of hydrogen

Lecture 6: Application to Fuel Cells and Electrolysers

Lecture 7: Energy storage and technologies

Lecture 8: Hydrogen for energy storage

Lecture 9: The hydrogen economy and sector-coupling

Lecture 10: Power to gas/x and NG network

Lecture 11: Hydrogen and fuel cells as UPS systems

Lecture 12: Hydrogen and fuel cells in energy supply of householders

Lecture 13: Energy and hydrogen corridors

Lecture 14: Aspects about safety, critical infrastructures and environmental impact of the energy system
