Presentation Title: Hydrogen- A Carrier in Future Clean and Sustainable Energy Systems


Energy systems are in transition as a part of Green Transition. Traditonal fosil fuel based energy technologies are being replaced by renewable energy and other clean energy technologies, such as wind turbines, PV panels, etc. Renewable energy based   green hydrogen would be a major energy carrier. The speech will cover the status of development of hydrogen technology, the features and challenges in the aspects of methods of production, storage and transportation. Some recent research work will be briefly introduced.
