Skip to 0 minutes and 13 seconds ROB MCHENRY: Hello and welcome to this free online course introducing you to the role of hydrogen within the clean energy transition. My name’s Rob McHenry. I’m a lecturer here at the School of Engineering within Deakin University. And together with my good friend Aidan Beer and a great team of learning specialists, we’re really excited to bring you this course. We’ve gone out and sourced all the information we can and talked to the experts to help answer the questions we had making this transition.

I’ve commissioned hydrogen plants, built hydrogen plants. I’ve worked with different types of hydrogen technologies, including fuel cell development. More recently, I’ve been involved with designing and procuring hydrogen refuelling facilities. And much more recently involved in large scale projects to take renewable energy through electrolysis into products that we can export from Australia.

Skip to 1 minute and 31 seconds ROB MCHENRY: So we’ll take you on a learning journey that includes exploring what is this clean energy transition? What is the role of hydrogen within that transition? What’s so special about hydrogen? How is hydrogen produced, stored, distributed, and used in so many cool ways? And what challenges and opportunities exist as a result of this emerging hydrogen economy, not just for our society, but for you as an individual? In the vein promoting sustainability, we acknowledge we don’t have the bright future we wish for without first recognising our past. So the team here at Deakin wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians of all the unceded lands on which we work to produce this learning resource for you.
