講演者プロフィール Speaker Profile
Sunita Satyapal is the Director of the Fuel Cell Technologies Office in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) at the Department of Energy (DOE). In this capacity, she is responsible for the office's overall strategy and execution, including oversight and coordination of approximately $100 million in research, development, demonstration, and deployment activities related to hydrogen and fuel cells. After joining DOE in 2003, she served primarily as the Hydrogen Storage Team Lead until 2008. She then served as the Hydrogen Office's Chief Engineer and Deputy Director. For several years she has coordinated hydrogen and fuel cell activities across DOE, with other agencies, and with international stakeholders, including with seventeen countries and the European Commission, through the International Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in the Economy. In addition to her time at DOE, she has more than 20 years of experience in academia, industry, and government, including at United Technologies Research Center and at UTC Fuel Cells in Connecticut. While in industry, she was responsible for managing research groups ranging from 15 to 50 scientists, engineers, and technicians covering a broad range of chemistry and energy technologies, including hydrogen and fuel cell research and development (R&D). She also served as business development manager to develop strategic R&D collaborations, both for government programs and international markets. Earlier in her career, she was a visiting assistant professor at Vassar College, and a visiting scientist at Columbia University and at Hokkaido University in Japan. She has also worked in the area of laser diagnostics in photodissociation and in the combustion of chemical warfare agents. She has authored or co-authored numerous publications, including in Scientific American, and has 10 patents issued.

Moving Forward with Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology in Germany

Germany is moving forward to define a role of hydrogen in the energy system of Germany. The introduction of hydrogen in all relevant sectors is necessary to achieve the German climate targets. The speech will present the current state of the German strategy towards hydrogen in the energy and transportation system.
