Fuel Cells and Hydrogen

Confirmed Invited Speakers

Xingbo  LiuFundamental Understanding of Oxygen Reduction Reaction Kinetics and Improving Electrochemical Performance of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Cathode
Xingbo Liu
Associate Professor & Associate Chair for Research Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department, West Virginia University

Fuel cells convert chemical energy from a fuel into electricity through chemical reaction with oxygen or another oxidizing agent. Hydrogen is the most common fuel. The technology promises more sustainable energy generation, particularly for transportation. This symposium focuses on technical challenges and success stories in fuel cell development and commercialization; and in hydrogen generation and storage. It provides a forum in which technology innovators discuss technology solutions with researchers from leading the industrial, academic, and government laboratories, and with the corporate and venture community.
