When operated in the reverse mode, on the other hand, they are very efficient for low-cost production of hydrogen from splitting water. Thus, a reversible fuel cell is ideally suited for large-scale energy storage and conversion, which is vital to the deployment of renewable energies. However, the commercialization of these systems hinges on rational design of novel materials of exceptional functionalities at lower temperatures to dramatically reduce the cost while enhancing performance and durability.To accomplish this goal, it is imperative to gain a fundamental understanding of the mechanisms of charge and mass transport along 三星平板s, across interfaces, and through porous electrodes. Further,new protocols must be developed to control materials structure, composition, and morphology over multiple length scales. This presentation will highlight the critical scientific challenges facing the development of a new generation of reversible fuel cells,the latest developments in modeling, simulation, and in situ characterization techniques for unraveling charge and mass transport mechanisms, and the outlook for future-generation energy storage systems that exploit nano-scale materials of significantly improved performance.

University Research to Change the World’s Energy Systems
Professor Franklin M. Orr, Jr.Stanford University
Abstract: Greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere are now one-third higher than they have been at any time in the last 650,000 years, and they will increase much more if steps are not taken to reduce emissions associated with energy use. This talk reviews the rationale for reducing emissions and describes a research program at Stanford and at other institutions around the world to lay the foundations for new options for energy use with much lower emissions of greenhouse gases. The research portfolio is a broad-ranging one that includes work on photovoltaics, bioenergy conversions, advanced combustion, and carbon capture and storage. Examples of the research are presented, and the option of geologic storage of CO2 is explored in a bit more detail.

GCEP Project Director, Stanford University
Franklin M. ("Lynn") Orr, Jr. became GCEP Project Director in November
- He is the Keleen and Carlton Beal Professor of Petroleum Engineering.
Orr was the Chester Naramore Dean of the School of Earth Sciences at Stanford University from 1994 to 2002.
Orr earned a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Stanford in 1969 and his doctorate in chemical engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1976. He joined the Stanford faculty in 1985.
Orr's research interests include multiphase flow in porous media; interactions of high-pressure phase equilibria of multicomponent mixtures with multiphase flow, with applications to enhanced oil recovery by gas injection processes and contaminant transport in aquifers; modeling of large-scale, hydrodynamically unstable flows in naturally heterogeneous porous media; theory of first-order partial differential equations as applied to chromatographic separations that occur during multiphase flow in porous media; capillary phenomena of near-critical fluids in porous systems; and gas hydrates and CO2 sequestration.
Orr was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2000. He is a member of the boards of directors of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
