John W. Sheffield joined Purdue University in January 2015. He holds the title of Professor Emeritus of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Missouri University of Science and Technology. Dr. Sheffield has a broad base of experience in energy technologies. He has served as one of the founding associate directors at the United Nations Industrial Development Organization - International Centre for Hydrogen Energy Technologies (UNIDO-ICHET) during their first two years of operation in 2005-2006. He also served as the Associate Director of the National University Transportation Center at Missouri S&T. For more than thirty years, he has served as an editor of the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy. In August 2014, he completed a two-year assignment as a principal consultant at DNV GL - Energy supporting the evaluation, measurement and verification of energy efficiency programs and the response to the U.S. DOE Uniform Methods Project Protocol review of compressed air systems. In August 2015, he completed a 7-week National Science Foundation Innovation Corps program as an industrial mentor for a potential startup company based on the manufacturing of bio-inspired bipolar plates for PEM fuel cells.

Title: Existing and future option for transport and distribution of renewable hydrogen.

Abstract: A review of existing and future option for the transport and distribution of renewable hydrogen provides insight into implementation strategies for “Power-to-Gas” technology, which uses renewable electricity to produce hydrogen. Specifically, variable renewable energy sources from wind and solar power are expected to meet an increasing share of the overall demand of electricity consumption. Thus, high variable energy source penetration scenarios generally will require a combination of strategies to maintain electric power-grid reliability. The Power-to-Gas storage technology offers the advantage of storing electricity in a multi-purpose energy carrier, hydrogen, which can be used as fuel for transportation and also can be injected in the existing natural gas pipeline networks for transport and distribution.

Dr. Roger Sierens

Dr. Ir. Roger Sierens is retired from the university of Gent, Belgium, but still active in research and development projects and as a reviewer. Previous professor (now honorary professor) at the Faculty of Applied Sciences, chairman of the Department of Flow, Heat and Combustion Mechanics and director of the laboratory of Transport Technology. He obtained several scientific awards, including an outstanding scientific achievement by the Int. Ass. For Hydrogen Energy and Doctor Honoris Causa, Havana, 2010. He published nearly 200 international papers on IC engines.

Title: Hydrogen is still the fuel of the future for IC engines.

Abstract: Hydrogen as a fuel in internal combustion engines (ICE’s) is still a solution for the near future to realize zero CO2 emissions for traffic applications in spite of the competition with electrical vehicles and fuel cells. The advantages and disadvantages will be given briefly and the load control strategies, including the direct injection of hydrogen will be discussed. The use of hydrogen as a mixture fuel and as a storage medium will be shown.
