Latest clean-energy technologies focus of international event hosted by UCI
UC Irvine’s Advanced Power and Energy Program is hosting the eighth International Colloquium on Environmentally Preferred Advanced Power Generation – a three-day international event focusing on the latest developments in clean-energy technologies and their emerging international presence. Topic areas include the development of combined cycle and fuel cell power plant technologies, the impact of other countries’ energy needs on our ability to deliver energy in the United States and the potential for collaboration among nations actively participating in advanced power research. ICEPAG highlights include:
Jan. 28, 1-5:30 p.m.: UCI experts will teach a hybrid fuel cell course to explain the fundamentals of the systems.
Jan. 29, 8 a.m.-noon: Contributors from the United States, Europe, China, Singapore and Korea will discuss advanced power programs in their respective countries.
Jan. 29, 1-3:45 p.m.: Participants will discuss technology readiness. This session includes a talk by Southern California Edison’s Russ Neal on the ramifications of new technologies on the power grid.
DATE: Monday, January 28, 2008
TIME: Hybrid Short Course: Jan. 28, 1-5:30 p.m.; ICEPAG 2008: Jan. 29-30, 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; Jan. 31, 8 a.m.-noon.
