”Future Energy Systems – The Role of Hydrogen” A joint-cooperation between Tokai University and The Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
On Thursday, June 27, the third seminar in the series, “Energy Transitions: On the Road to Sustainable Energy Societies,” was held via video link between Tokai University, Japan, and The Technical University of Denmark (DTU-Risø Campus). The seminar series, launched in 2012, is a joint-project undertaken by both universities for the purpose of promoting exchange and cooperation between Denmark and Japan in the field of energy, and of discussing current and future challenges relating to the transition to sustainable energy systems. “Future Energy Systems – The Role of Hydrogen” was the title of this third seminar, and it took a closer look at hydrogen technology, its development, and its potential as a component in energy system compositions. The Program featured four presentations, two from Denmark and two from Japan, and Ms. Camilla Nellemann, PhD Fellow at Rikkyo University, Japan, started things off with the presentation, “The Fukushima Accident: Strategic Implications for Japan’s Nuclear Industry.” The presentation offered information on recent findings exposing the nuclear disaster as a case of management malpractice and concluded that nuclear power will remain an integral part of Japan’s energy system for the foreseeable future. Professor Toshiya Ozaki, also of Rikkyo University, offered supplementary comments to the presentation.
