Hydrogen energy and related technologies have the potential to play a large role in our future energy supplies and systems. As part of the Low Carbon Research Institute’s (LCRI) Welsh Energy Sector Training (WEST) project, the University of South Wales has developed a short online course investigating the current and future roles of hydrogen, hydrogen related technologies, and the characteristics of hydrogen. The course will suit anyone with an interest in energy related topics. On completion of the course (10 hours total time), you will receive a 1 credit continuing professional development accreditation. To register on the Fundamentals of Hydrogen and Fuel Cells course, go to https://www.westproject.org.uk/content/hydrogen. The course is free to people who live or work in the convergence region of Wales.
The LCRI Programme works with industry, particularly SMEs, to develop new industry-relevant technologies that will provide business opportunities and help Wales deliver its low carbon agenda.
The main objective of WEST is to develop skills to aid the utilisation and uptake of new technologies developed through the LCRI industrial research programme. This will ensure that industrial research is disseminated through both traditional educational streams as well as directly to industry through Continuing Professional Development.
