KangKi Lee, Senior Vice President High Power Systems

The high power systems sector is dedicated to achieving sustainability and decarbonization, and these ambitious objectives can only be realized by taking into account the full spectrum of available technologies. The utilization of alternative fuels on the path to achieving net-zero CO2 emissions and Zero Carbon Fuels is a highly practical option that must be considered for specific applications. Energy life cycle management plays a pivotal role in the journey towards rendering shipping more ecologically friendly and sustainable. Foremost among our priorities is improving the efficiency of all systems and entire powertrains to the maximum extent possible. Nevertheless, it's equally crucial to consider the aspects of energy and fuels. Power-to-X technologies will enable us to store clean energy for use at the right time and in the right place.

CLOSING REMARKS

Prof. Kangki Lee
Senior Vice President High Power Systems, AVL List GmbH

High Efficiency Systems and Powertrains

The challenging targets for the decarbonization have increased the pressure to improve the efficiency of propulsion and energy generation systems. The current prices of alternative fuels compared to their traditional fossil competitors are significantly higher, and although economies of scale and improved production methods will bring reductions they are expected to remain higher. This presents the need for more efficient and better optimized systems and powertrains. The industry is rapidly responding to such demands through solutions ranging from the use of innovative materials, optimized component selection, hybrid solutions and data driven system optimization. There is a wide range of approaches and initiatives to improve the efficiency of existing assets through conversions and novel solutions for the future generations.

Energy Life Cycle Management

Within the context of well-to-wake optimization, green corridor energy life cycle management focuses on leveraging the use of alternative fuels — specifically hydrogen, ammonia, and methanol (currently prominent as transitional fuels). The systems technology integrates internal combustion engines that use power-to-liquid solutions, alongside fuel cells. This approach ensures a comprehensive and sustainable energy life cycle, promoting efficient power generation and distribution across diverse sectors like shipping, power generation, rail, and mining. The goal is to enhance environmental performance while meeting the high power demands of these industries.

Efficient energy conversion for decades
Energy Ecosystem

Power-to-X Technologies

Power-to-X (PtX) technologies represent a groundbreaking path in the energy landscape, enabling the conversion of renewable electricity into various forms of energy and supporting the decarbonization of multiple sectors. Moreover, PtX facilitates the integration of electricity, heat and transportation, promoting a more interconnected energy system. However, there are still challenges. Efficiency, cost and scalability are critical areas that still need to be improved. Advances, e.g. in electrolyzer technology and infrastructure are needed to optimize PtX processes and make them economically viable on a larger scale. The latest developments in the field of high temperature electrolyzers (SOEC) and PtX plants are breakthroughs that represent a step forward in overcoming existing challenges and pushing the boundaries of what PtX technologies can achieve.

Alternative Fuels Towards Net-Zero CO2 and Zero Carbon Fuels

In the pursuit of a sustainable future, alternative fuels emerge as beacons of change, offering a pathway to a net-zero carbon footprint. Hydrogen, ammonia, methanol and synthetic methane take center stage as the driving forces behind this transformative journey of the high power system industry. Hydrogen, a light weight true zero emission energy carrier, holds the key to powering some high power applications with minimal environmental impact in the short term. Ammonia steps into the spotlight with its good energy density, presenting itself as a promising zero-carbon fuel for a variety of uses. Methanol, valued for its ease of handling, demonstrates its effectiveness as an important energy carrier in the quest for net-zero carbon emissions. Synthetic methane, a product of innovative processes, might be the ideal fuel in the transition phase of decarbonizing our energy landscape. The potential of these alternative fuels can take the industry closer to a world with zero carbon emissions. Innovation and responsibility come together to create a sustainable and cleaner future for generations ahead.

Helmut List Halle

The Helmut List Halle as part of the Smart City is located in Graz, the capital of Styria. Thanks to its close proximity to Graz Central Station and the public transport connections (tram line 6 in the direction of Smart City), it is easily accessible at all times. If you like walking, you can also reach the Helmut List Halle in just 10-15 minutes from the main railway station through the underpass at the water tower. The newly built cycle path leads directly past the hall.
Further details on how to get there can be found HERE
