Research Interests

We focus on renewable energy management at a convenient and suitable place for overseas and are researching regional renewable management by using renewable hydrogen.
1) Utilization of renewable energy fuel (hydrogen, methane): Utilization for mobility and chemical industry
2) Distributed energy management using renewable energy + hydrogen: local production for local consumption, independent energy system
3) Use of renewable energy fuel : For example, industrial, commercial, logistics, agricultural use, etc.
