The colloquium is organized by the National Fuel Cell Research Center and the Advanced Power and Energy Program at the University of California, Irvine in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy; the European Union; the United Nations; the Pacific Rim Consortium on Energy, Combustion, and the Environment; and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. It is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy.
The theme of ICEPAG 2010 is â€œAdvanced Power Generation: 1 Megawatt to 1,000 Megawatts.â€ The conference features a plenary session followed by sessions in two tracks highlighting DISTRIBUTED GENERATION and CENTRAL POWER. Presentations address the technological, environmental, regulatory and market aspects of the featured technologies, including (1) emerging international activity, (2) development of international markets, and (3) the potential for collaboration among participating countries.
The DISTRIBUTED GENERATION track addresses (1) the existing and emerging technologies for distributed generation (DG) at the site of use including system performance, facility integration, waste-heat recovery, and control; (2) grid connectivity and ramifications; and (3) the implications of electricity as a fuel for vehicles. The track emphasis is directed to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, criteria pollutant emissions, and urban air quality impacts; the co-generation of transportation fuels; and case studies that address the economics of deployment.
The CENTRAL POWER track addresses the existing and emerging technologies for central plants including (1) system concepts, system performance, carbon mitigation, and control; (2) the challenges, opportunities, and ramifications associated with large renewable deployment; and (3) grid integration and security. The track emphasis is directed to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, criteria pollutant emissions, and urban air quality impacts, the co-generation of transportation fuels, and case studies that address the economics of deployment.
An optional tutorial â€• the FUEL CELL/GAS TURBINE HYBRID SHORT COURSE â€• will be held the afternoon of Monday, February 8, 2010, at the National Fuel Cell Research Center at the University of California, Irvine. The tutorial provides essential background on the fundamentals, design, deployment, history, and operating characteristics of hybrid fuel cell systems.
