Renewable Energy Dynamics
| For the application of an effective energy resource in the future, the
limitation of fossil fuels is clear and the security of alternative energy
sources is an important subject. Furthermore, as concerns for environmental
issues, the development and application of renewable and clean new energy
are strongly expected. Among others, wind energy, solar energy and ocean
energy technologies are about to play a big role in a new energy field.
The objective of this division is to clarify the dynamical processes in
efficient wind energy utilization, efficient solar energy absorption and
ocean energy utilization and to develop new energy devices based on the
dynamics. We have five sections, whose activities are as follows, and a
large part of us is involved in a research project on the new generation
energy project of Kyushu University.
