A workshop of the University of Tokyo satellite was held.

As informed earlier the workshop of the University of Tokyo satellite "An expansion of the renewable energies and an innovation of the electric power systems based on the Paris Agreement ”was held in the Gakushi Kaikan, at 13:00 on September 26th(Mon).

In the workshop required technologies and expense allocation methods were discussed by the related people for the power grid operation and control when the renewable energies are largely used under the liberalization of the market.

Questions were raised by the audience which were related to the generation and the utilization of hydrogen in terms of technology and social system.

Through the workshop the leading edge knowledge on the production, storage and utilization of hydrogen was shared.
