Teaching hydrogen energy in the Netherlands

Cor Scholte, 51, a teacher at the Hanzehogeschool University in Groningen, the Netherlands, demonstrates the qualities of hydrogen energy using a hydrogen barbecue grill he invented. 

The grill has two energy supplies: hydrogen and propane. He compares the two side-by-side and shows students the difference in residues, heat, and safety measures. 

"Theories are hard to remember, but if you let students taste and see the results of hydrogen, they will remember this lesson for life," says Scholte.

The meat is burnt when Scholte showed how fast hydrogen can ignite.

Scholte is a teacher at EnTranCe, the Centre of Expertise Energy, which aims to speed up the transition to clean, renewable and affordable energy. Scientists, students, businesses, authorities and social institutions all come together to share their knowledge at the centre of expertise. Together they develop the innovations that are needed for the energy transition and strengthen the regional knowledge economy.
