Title: Planning of Hybrid Energy with Hydrogen Deployment Strategies for Zero Carbon Communities

Abstract: In this talk, hybrid energy with hydrogen deployments strategies are analyzed, modeled usign collaborative simulation. The different modeling levels of hybrid energy systems and hydrogen technologies will be presented as interconnected with community infrastructures. Collaborative simulation approaches are used to evaluate the utilization to plan hydrogen deployment in municipalities and community applications. The concept of energy semantic network is utilized to model energy networks and interconnected infrasturctures while defining key performance indicators. The collaborative simulation will enable the definition of different strategies and scenarios and optimize based on performance, risks, and transactive energy. Case studies will be presnted with energy, nuclear, transportation, hydrogen, and water networks as interfaced with infrastructures.

Speech Title: Clean Energy and Low Carbon Technologies Challenges in Energy Sector and Its Future

Abstract:Energy is one of the basic inputs for economic growth, automation, modernization and social development. Current global energy supply mainly come from fossil fuels that emits greenhouse gases. According to IPCC, global warming continues and getting worse if there is not rapid initiative will be taken to shift towards clean energy and decarbonization technologies. About 350 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere is a safe norm. The current CO2 emission is already more than 400 ppm that is already crossed the safe level and represents a risk state. As the fossil fuels-based energy is the main source of CO2 emission and air pollution, the green energy and decarbonization technologies are the potential solutions.
