Hydrogen’s Role in Decarbonization is a VIRTUAL classroom course presented by the energy training experts at Mennta Energy Solutions.

This workshop is designed to supply the basic knowledge you need to distinguish the hope from the hype in all the current talk about hydrogen as a carbon-free energy carrier.

Topics explored during the course include the properties of hydrogen and how they hold out both promises and challenges.  You will find out how hydrogen can be produced, stored, transported and put to useful work.  The course explores the current and potential end-use applications for hydrogen, the nature of today’s existing hydrogen economy and the very different projected future hydrogen economy of 2030 and beyond.

Your learning from the class will be reinforced and extended by participation in case studies and discussion exercises in small groups, and by quiz and poll questions designed to get you thinking about issues such as the scale of existing and planned hydrogen use.

This virtual solution is comprised of three live instructor-led sessions hosted on state-of-the-art training software with video, audio, chat, live polls, breakout sessions and much more!


Class delegates include anyone who is interested in learning about hydrogen and how its applications can support a decorbonizing world.

Nigel Harris is a director and principal consultant at Kingston Energy Consulting, which he founded with Mary Jackson in 2002. He has been helping energy traders to analyse and understand the markets for over 25 years, initially as a developer of market analysis software systems, and more recently as a consultant. At Kingston Energy Consulting, his main focus is on providing education and information transfer to participants in the energy trading business, through instructor-led classroom training, web-based training development, research projects, workshops, briefings and research-based report writing. In his work with Mennta Energy Solutions, he has created a library of new instructor-led and web-based courses on European gas and power markets and trading. In 2005, he worked with Mary Jackson to develop the popular Oil Trading Orientation course, which has since been presented at venues all over the world. He has also extensively revised and updated many existing courses on derivatives, hedging and risk management.  He regularly presents this material both at public venues and as in-house, often customised, courses. He is co-author of a series of highly regarded reports on European natural gas trading and has also contributed to reports on power markets and oil trading. In previous roles, he was a key member of the team that initially designed and developed Saladin’s innovative Petroleum Analysis Workstation, a system that became an industry standard for historical price analysis during the 1990s and remained in use in the industry for two decades. During this period, he worked closely and extensively with oil and gas traders around the world to understand their information and analytical requirements. He also spent some years as an independent consultant, working mainly with software and information providers to help them better understand the oil and gas trading sectors.
