Session 08: FUEL CELLS

Note: We assume all delegates attend the full 3-day conference. The times/dates shown on the website are tentative for conference scheduling, and subject to change before 20th July 2015, Final schedule will be confirmed on 21st July 2015.

Fuel cells are destined to form the cornerstone of energy technologies in the twenty-first century. The Session of fuel cells will address the current status, trends and future perspectives and challenges of various types of fuel cells. Topics will include theoretical, numerical and experimental investigations into the issues related to fuel cell materials, components, single cells, and stacks.
