Short/Extended Abstract Submission

The Fuel Cell Nanomaterials Center is a R&D research center for the purpose of contributing to the actual proliferation of fuel cells build by University of Yamanashi in 2008. University of Yamanashi has actively investigated developing fuel cell technologies since 1970's. The Fuel Cell Nanomaterials Center is sincerely working to create innovative, fruitful research achievements, and at the same time, to develop human resources, both researchers and engineers.
Yume Solar Hall Yamanashi is the demonstration facility founded by Yamanashi prefecture in 2012 on Komekura-yama mountain, which was installed the 10,000 kW of PV, the next generation flywheel energy storage system, the improved nickel-metal hydride storage system, the power to gas system, and the geothermal heat pump system. Here you can see the leading-edge renewable energy storage systems.
