Renewable Engine ISG members lead the way in Skills Development for Hydrogen Safety
Members of the Renewable Engine International Stakeholder Group (ISG) have formed a partnership to successfully secure an EU-funded Erasmus+ project, HySkills. The ISG consists of international experts from across industry and academia within the Renewable Energy sector that provide top-level strategic direction to the Renewable Engine programme, while also identifying opportunities for exploitation.
HySkills aims to develop a modular training course enhanced with practical training focused on the subject of green hydrogen safety skills. ISG members South West College (UK – Lead Partner), Dublin City University (Ireland) and the European Institute for Innovation-Technology (Germany), along with The University of Tromsø (The Arctic University – Norway) and PROMEA (the Hellenic Society for the Promotion of Research and Development Methodologies – Greece) have formed a partnership to address a clear need that has been identified; as new green hydrogen technologies (and associated systems) are adopted there must be a fully equipped workforce in place with the ability to work with hydrogen in a critically safe manner.
Hydrogen research and discovery is already underway as part of the Renewable Engine programme. Working closely with the industry partners, current research themes relate to the feasibility of hydrogen adoption and considerations for implementing the transition to green hydrogen utilisation.
