All over the world, we are witnessing consequences of climate change, such as melting glaciers, bleaching corals, draughts, floods and extreme weather fluctuations. Moreover, air pollution has a negative impact on human health such as the spread of cardiovascular diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer or asthma. Besides the impact on human health, acidic rains threaten the natural environment of many animal species and endanger biodiversity.
Cem Ünlübayir from the Institute for Power Electronics and Electrical Drives, RWTH Aachen University will present his research results reached within the NAUTILUS project at the 2022 IEEE/AIAA Transportation Electrification Conference and Electric Aircraft Technologies Symposium (ITEC+EATS) that will be held in Anaheim, California on June 15-17, 2022. He will give a speech on June 16 on Technical Session 3 (Efficient and Robust Marine Power Systems) about the Development of an intelligent energy management strategy for a hybrid maritime propulsion system considering component aging.
Dr. Asif Ansar from German Aerospace Center, Head of Energy System Head of Department DLR - German Aerospace Center, will give a speech at Technical Forum of Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Europe 2022 (30th May – 2nd June 2022) /HMI 2022, Hall 13, Stand A80, Germany.
Joakim Pagels from the University of Lund (ULUND) will present how a novel propulsion system powered by a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) combined with Li-Ion batteries can contribute to reduce health and climate impacts of cruise ship emissions. The presentation will be given at the Knowledge for Sustainable Development Conference (2nd May 2022) in Lund. SOFC fuel cells hybridized by batteries is a technology approach with applications in marine industry that are currently examined by the NAUTILUS project.
