The College of Engineering invites the WSU community to attend a seminar regarding the future of energy systems.
Join Bryan Pivovar, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) senior research fellow, at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24 in 265 Rhatigan Student Center for the seminar, “The 2020s, the Decade of Hydrogen.”
The seminar will discuss hydrogen’s importance to the investments being made in renewable energies for future energy systems. While the auto sector has had the most press for H2 production on a large scale, this has expanded to include heavy duty transportation (on road, marine, rail and air), the steel and ammonia industry, and major examples of bulk hydrogen, including deployment of liquid hydrogen tankers and efforts to convert natural gas infrastructure to hydrogen compatible.
Bryan Pivovar is a senior research fellow and electrochemical engineering and materials chemistry group manager in the Chemistry and Nanosciences Center at NREL where he oversees electrolysis and fuel cell and materials R&D.
