100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply
KnowHy – Improving the Knowledge in Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology for Technicians and Workers

KnowHy is a 3 years European FP7-project – funded by the European Commission and coordinated by the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking – that aims at providing to the widest possible audience of technicians specific training modules, practical, in an appropriate format and at affordable cost, to facilitate the deployment of the FC&H2 technologies expected to enter the market within the time frame 2014-2020. 

Despite the fact that new job opportunities for technicians and workers regarding Hydrogen and Fuel Cells applications are expected to raise in the short term, there is an evident lack of training offers for technicians fitting market demand.

KnowHy intends to overcome this gap offering a program of courses encompassing one common core module and six different specialisations. Courses, realised on an e-learning platform, will be held in different countries and available in 7 languages (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch).
