This two-part course addresses two clean energies: photovoltaic solar energy and hydrogen technologies. This course offers a review of the fundamentals, technologies and applications of photovoltaic solar energy and insights about the state-of-the-art and an overview of the development of the full value chain of the hydrogen economy from hydrogen generation to hydrogen off-takers. Insights into the different alternatives for hydrogen generation focusing on decarbonization, storage and transportation and potential off-takers and utilization of hydrogen will be provided. A general overview of the hydrogen value chain is the starting point for the understanding of the role of hydrogen in the transition to a decarbonised society, as well as the main challenges to be tackled for its implementation as energy vector and industrial commodity.
