Research Center for Smart Energy Technology


Established : 2012
Director :Professor Yoshio Ohshita

Research Outline

This center aims at developing smart energy technologies for sustainable society. We integrate science and technologies of "generation", "control" and "conversion and storage" of energy. Our research focuses on (1) photoelectric conversion and hydrogen formation by photocatalyst as enegy generation from green energy, (2) control of electric power network, (3) high efficiency energy conversion and new electric energy storage.
