Development of a renewable, self-sufficient energy system in local areas

Hokkaido University

In recent years, many natural disasters have occurred due to climate change, and local industries and communities have suffered damage as a result. Given this, a self-sufficient renewable energy system is urgently required. Consequently, a robust, sustainable community that is resilient to disasters in both emergency and non-emergency situations will be created through the development of an industrial DC nanogrid with a newly developed multi-fuel engine that can be used with a range of fuels.
