How to produce hydrogen, an electric and energy-storage medium, in a “low carbon” manner, and how to secure a stable supply of energy?”
The conversion and storage of green energy is one of the most critical issues confronting humankind.
In order to solve these problems, this program nurtures global leaders who can achieve the best balance of various energy conversion devices, through an educational approach where industry, government, and academia share a common vision.
