Introduction to the Hydrogen Economy is a VIRTUAL classroom course presented by the energy training experts at Mennta Energy Solutions.

This workshop covers the fundamentals of the hydrogen industry, the existing uses, and a look forward at proposed applications.

Topics also explored during the course include the types of hydrogen, production technology, transportation, storage, demand-side applications, and government policies and commitments.

A key element of the course is that you get the chance to put the knowledge learned into practice through a series of educational and enjoyable class exercises.  These exercises are designed to reinforce and extend your learning from the class.

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.

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.
