COURSE TITLE: Hydrogen - Production, Delivery, Storage and Use
COURSE NO: M02-023
COURSE PROVIDER: Brian McCaffrey, P.E.
Hydrogen - Production, Delivery, Storage and Use
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of the current methods and challenges associated with production, delivery, storage, and use of hydrogen as a transportation fuel.  Additionally, this course describes the basics 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 to be well-informed about hydrogen in order to advance the commercial development of hydrogen production, delivery, storage, and use.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for engineers, contractors, facility managers, and other technical personnel who are involved in the production, delivery and storage of Hydrogen.

COURSE TITLE: Hydropower: The Largest Source of Renewable Energy
COURSE NO: R03-003
Hydropower: The Largest Source of Renewable Energy
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the technology of hydropower generation and provides estimates of hydropower availability.  The advantages of generating electricity by hydropower rather than by fossil fuels are presented. Environmental impacts such as impounding water, flooding terrestrial habitats, and preventing the movement of fish and aquatic organisms, sediments, and nutrients are also described.  Barriers to the expansion of hydropower, such as the high capital cost of new hydropower projects and the lengthy licensing and approval process are discussed.

 

Hydropower is currently the largest source of renewable electricity generation in the United States, representing approximately 7% of total generation. Larger plants with water storage capability will play an important role in the future development of wind and solar power generation by providing back-up power to smooth out the fluctuations associated with these variable power sources.
