Presentation Title: Hydrogen-based Chemical Energy Storage
Abstract: Large quantities of hydrogen are needed in the petroleum and chemical industries. The largest applications of hydrogen are for processing of fossil fuels and in the production of ammonia for fertilizer market. Hydrogen is also an ideal fuel for fuel cells, especially for the low-temperature Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFCs). Despite very high gravimetric energy density, hydrogen is suffered from low volumetric energy density, hence making it very challenging for fuel storage and transportation. In this talk, the speaker will first briefly introduce Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Technologies research at Energy Research Institute @ NTU, then a topic on hydrogen-based chemical energy storage spanning from hydrogen, syngas and ammonia follows. High-temperature electrolysis based on the solid oxide electrolysis cell is introduced to efficiently produce these hydrogen-based chemical fuels or feedstock electrochemically and in a single-step of conversion, hence preserving the energy conversion efficiency.

Presentation Title: Provision of Clean Water in Remote Village / Islet through Solar Energy Application: Case of Indonesia

Abstract: Provision of clean fresh water is a fatal need to ensure hygienically living environment for the residents in the remote areas in the world. Indonesia is one of the countries which own a lot of water resources in their territories but have moderate coverage in water basic services, and is chosen as a case for the study. Indonesia is composed of 16,056 islands / islets in its territory so that there are many coastal villages in the islets and additionally many remote villages in the inland of big islands, which have no well-treated water services such as tap water. In consideration of low population, poorly geographic accessibility, and lack of electricity in the remote areas, several candidates of current water treatment systems availably associated with solar energy applications are reviewed here.
