3rd Fuel Cell Research Symposium: «Modelling and Experimental Validation – From in-situ Diagnostics to Multiscale Modelling»

Fuel Cells – Modeled for a Sustainable Future

Apr 13, 2006 | BEAT ASCHWANDEN

“Models are absolutely essential to accelerate the introduction of fuel cell technology to the marketplace,” according to Dr. Alphons Hintermann, the initiator of the Fuel Cell Research Symposium. With this statement Hintermann, outgoing Program Leader in the Swiss Federal Office for Energy (FOE), went right to the heart of the matter. The symposium, a two day event held at the Empa in Duebendorf, was an occasion for the 70-odd participating experts on fuel cells to discuss the future of these devices. In a series of thirty lectures they described their technical and scientific work in the field of fuel cell research and development and presented their latest results, as well as new instruments for creating models and testing them experimentally.
