Research Interests

In this department, we are mainly engaged in system design and evaluation for the social implementation of renewable hydrogen production system combining photovoltaic power generation. Among them, I am studying on the following subjects;
(1) Conceptual design of a large-scale renewable hydrogen production plant
(2) System design based on life cycle thinking
(3) Techno-economic analysis (TEA)
(4) Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
(5) System integration with biofuel, biomass power generation, etc.
(6) System design suitable for the installation area from the viewpoint of land use such as agriculture and food production etc.
(7) Construction of social system image (scenario) on renewable fuel and extraction of issue on system and policy
