Hydrogen is a hot topic nowadays. Why? Because society must find solutions to reduce its impact on climate change and because there is now a political will (in Europe) to develop a hydrogen economy. The mobility sector, and in particular the heavy mobility, is concerned by this transformation.
Join us in this course if you are interested in gaining knowledge about the hydrogen mobility context, fuel cells and hydrogen combustion engines!
Hydrogen contents 2022 is now closed
After some general information about hydrogen production and the hydrogen economy, you will gain a deep understanding of the hydrogen solution for mobility. We will explore both the fuel cells and the hydrogen thermal engine solutions as a mean to reduce the environmental footprint of heavy mobility.
Our focus is mostly technical and aims at three objectives: - You will be able to describe the working principle of a fuel cell, from the reaction to the fuel stack and the fuel cell vehicle. - You will also be able to explain the chemical characteristics of hydrogen that influence combustion, how they impact performances and the technical developments needed to improve hydrogen combustion engines - Finally, you will be able to compare each solution and identify the main development constraints.
This course has been especially designed for our students enrolled in the Powertrains and Sustainable Mobility Center at IFP School. If you are an engineering student or a young professional interested in hydrogen and mobility, this course is for you!
It can also be of interest for professionals of the mobility sector looking to get a deeper and fresh understanding of these technologies.

Conditions of agreements
In the context of this Massive Open On Line Course “Energy Transition: Innovation towards a low carbon future” (hereafter called « the MOOC »), IFP School has implemented a process for the collection of your personal data.
This process is subject to European regulation (General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR) and French regulation (Data Protection Act of 6 January 1978 and its implementing decree) on personal data protection.
Officer in Charge of Processing Personal Data
The body in charge of processing personal data is IFP Energies nouvelles, a public commercial and industrial establishment, to which IFP School, located at 232, avenue Napoléon Bonaparte, 92852 - Rueil-Malmaison Cédex, France (hereafter called « the School »), is attached.
Manner and Purposes of the Collection of Personal Data
The personal data collected through the application « The MOOC » (http://mooc-energytransition.ifp-school.com/) are used for the following purposes:
to identify the MOOC participant;
