InnoBlog: From Master’s in Renewable Energy to working in the H2 sector

In this blog I have interviewed Brais Armiño Franco, a graduating student from the MSc. Renewable Energy programme. Brais is currently working on a research project with Instituto Superior Técnico, studying offshore hydrogen production and offloading through different energy carriers.

 

Brais fell in love with hydrogen one year ago, while pursuing his first year of Master’s at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. He realised its necessity in achieving the fully decarbonised energy system that the world has been aspiring for. Hydrogen is paramount in eradicating CO2 emissions from hard-to-abate sectors such as chemical industry or heavy transportation. It can offer long-term storage for countries with big seasonal renewable energy intermittency and is also the only energy vector that can transport green energy across continents. This potential of H2 is what got Brais on board!

Tell us a bit about your research project.

How did EIT InnoEnergy Master’s prepare you for this role?

Has this been a fulfilling experience?

Any encouraging words for future students who want to take this path?
