“Challenges and Opportunities with Renewable Energy Penetration”

Speaker: Dr. J. Yan
Royal Institute of Technology & Mälardalen University, Sweden
Editor-in-Chief of Applied Energy

Abstract: Energy systems have been in transition, extending their
boundaries beyond the energy systems themselves. One of challenging issues is the intermittent power generation and
mismatching of energy supply and demand over a time scale when high renewable energy penetration takes place. This calls for interdisciplinary and synthetic approach from not only the
systematic overview, but also detailed components of clean energy systems. It needs to integrate the end-users load control with different energy saving approaches. It is location specific and highly tailored to serve its customers’ needs. Changing from resource conversion into the smart integration also needs integration of energy with digitalization. Renewables, distributed generation, and smart grids demand new capabilities and are triggering new business opportunities, which is further stimulating the future development of the energy systems.

“A Broad Perspective on Future Mobility – How Battery Changes Electrification”

Speaker: Dr. Boryann Liaw, Idaho National Laboratory

Abstract: The renewable energy and electrification in the transportation sector have brought significant changes in the energy sectors regarding the next generation of mobility and grid infrastructure. In this mix, battery technology plays a significant role in this transformation of our future energy planning and security. Idaho National Lab (INL) sees a great challenge in the electrification process that is unchartered by the industry. With the support under the U.S. Department of Energy EERE office, INL is conducting some forefront research that is intended to greatly support the mission to enable the electrified transformation in the U.S. and the world. This presentation shall provide some live discussions on how this is going to happen and how the battery technology sector is responding to the needs in the industry and the society.

Biography: Dr. Boryann (Bor Yann) Liaw is manager of the Energy Storage and Advanced Vehicles Department at Idaho National Laboratory. The department operates state-of-the-art Energy Storage Innovation Technology Center (ESITeC), Non-destructive Battery Laboratory for Evaluation (NOBLE), and Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Laboratory (EVIL), to conduct reliability, safety, and failure analyses of energy storage systems, advanced vehicles, and charging equipment and infrastructure. Dr. Liaw received his doctorate in materials science and engineering from Stanford University. He is a Fellow of the Electrochemical Society and past President of International Battery Association. He has been a university faculty member at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and active professional consultant in industry before joining INL.

Seminar by Prof. Mark Ehsani, Thursday, April 19, 2018 at 6:00-8:00pm P-144, Physics Building

Speaker: Mehrdad (Mark) Ehsani, Ph. D., P. E., LF. IEEE, F. SAE, M. AAAS

Texas A&M University College Station, Texas 77843

Abstract: There is plenty of hydro-carbon resource energy available on earth, for hundreds of years. The urgency of sustainable energy and transportation problem is from prolusion, global warming, and
equitable access to energy for all humanity. The way forward is to help the developing world (90% of the population that dominates the future emissions) with “clean” energy, rather than making the developed world clean (the 10% solution). This has to be done by appropriate technologies, consistent with sound business plans, and market economy.

This presentation offers the engineering and economic foundations of the above proposition. Case studies and example technologies from the author’s group at Texas A&M University will be presented as specific illustrations.

Bio of speaker: Mark Ehsani is the Robert M. Kennedy Endowed Professor of electrical engineering and Director of Sustainable Energy and Vehicle Engineering Research Program and the Power Electronics and Motor Drives Laboratory at Texas A&M University. He has served in leadership positions of several IEEE Societies, including their governing boards. He has been honored by various international organizations over 140 times, including IEEE Field Award for undergraduate Teaching and IEEE Vehicular Technology
Society Avant Garde Award. He is the co-author of over 400 publications, 18 books, over 30 US and EU patents, and has been a consultant to over 60 international companies and government agencies. He is a Life Fellow of IEEE and a Fellow of SAE.
