About this event

You may have noticed that in recent times there has been significant growth in research and discoveries concerning the development of a greener and more diverse energy matrix.

Whether due to natural, social or market factors, it is a fact that we are going through a moment of transition and sustainable expertise is becoming a key ally for professionals in the field. However, it is unsurprising to feel overwhelmed with the amount of information accessible and not quite sure where to start your research.

One of the most innovative areas is the hydrogen sector. Despite being the simplest of all elements, hydrogen provokes quite intriguing questions. What are the challenges of hydrogen usage? What are the principles for regulation? What are the requirements to say that hydrogen is green or low carbon? In what does "carbon capture" consist?

All the queries above and several others related to Low-Carbon Energy Technologies will be answered in a 1-day in-person workshop by a heavyweight specialist engaged in the research and trade of renewable energy.

In this workshop, the following topics will be covered:
• Hydrogen - Source of energy's decarbonisation: opportunities and challenges
• Low-Carbon Energy Generation and Technologies
• Energy Transition
• Primary and secondary sources of energy: generation, uses and impacts

By the end of the course, you will know:
• Green hydrogen; carbon capture; carbon credits in Brazil and in the world
• Low-carbon energy in Brazil and the world: socio-environmental, economic and regulatory aspects
• How energy transitions occurred in the past and how the current transition is designed
• Why do we say that Brazil is privileged in terms of energy sources and what are the main challenges we face in the sector


Trainer:
• Sayonara Eliziario - Professor at the Department of Renewable Energy Engineering, a researcher at the Federal University of Paraíba, and researcher at GESEL - Group of Studies of the Electricity Sector of UFRJ
