A $2m contract has been awarded by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to progress the Hydrogen Education for a Decarbonised Global Economy (H2EDGE) workforce development initiative.
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), the Gas Technology Institute (GTI), Oregon State University, Purdue University, and the University of Delaware have all benefited from the DOE contract, which aims to develop and grow the emerging hydrogen-focused workforce.
H2EDGE has a dual focus on developing newly trained personnel and enabling the existing labour force to migrate into the hydrogen field through enhanced industry coordination and workforce readiness initiatives.
The project is funded through DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE) Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office, with additional cost-share funding from the Low-Carbon Resources Initiative, jointly led by EPRI and GTI, as well as participating universities.
