    Urban Energy System Area

    Professor SHIMODA Yoshiyuki   Associate Professor YAMAGUCHI Yohei
    The energy-demand side is vitally important while performing an analysis of our energy system. The main themes investigated by this laboratory are the urban energy metabolism, evaluation of heat system performance, modeling and management of energy demand, and active utilization of energy demand in smart grids.

    Energy and Environmental Materials Area

    Professor YAMANAKA Shinsuke   Associate Professor KUROSAKI Ken   Associate Professor MUTA Hiroaki   Assistant Professor OHISHI Yuji
    We study functional materials for thermal management with the aim of solving energy problems and realizing sustainable society. Thermoelectric, nuclear, thermal storage, and thermal insulation materials are studied. We have experiences in fabrication of various materials and in characterization of their thermophysical properties. Computational studies re also conducted to theoretically predict or validate the experimental results.

    Green Engineering for Global Environment Area

    Associate Professor MACHIMURA Takashi   Assistant Professor MATSUI Takanori
    The main research theme of the Green Engineering for Global Environment (GE) lab is the “sustainable use of ecosystem services towards establishing a natural symbiotic society.” Global-scale environmental problems such as global warming and biodiversity loss, caused by the consumption of natural resources and energy, are of major concern in terms of global, regional, and local sustainability. To understand complex global problems, it is necessary to consider the natural environment and human society as “a holistic ecosystem,” and to analyze the flow and stock of energy and materials seamlessly within the system. The GE lab aims to study and design the integration of the natural environment and society from an ecological viewpoint and to provide education for interdisciplinary collaborations.
