UH Energy Micro-Credentialing Programs
CCUS Executive Education Program
CCUS is not simply an option but recognized by the International Energy Agency and our own US Department of Energy as a requirement to provide necessary impact to the de-carbonization of our society. Markets such as Oil & Gas, petrochemicals, electric power, hydrogen, and the circular plastics economy all ride on the shoulders of the broad commercial deployment of CCUS. If you are in industry or energy is a significant part of your activities and interests (and that is nearly all of us), this is a course you cannot pass up. You will understand the technology and economics of the value proposition impacts - as well as the challenges to be overcome.
