Renewable Energy Applications and Energy Saving in Buildings 可再生能源的应用和建筑节能

Speech Title: Design optimization of hybrid renewable energy and electrical energy storage systems for power supply to buildings建筑中应用风光互补混合电力蓄能系统的优化设计研究

Abstract:Renewable energy applications with electrical energy storage have promising potential to reduce carbon emissions and maintain a sustainable energy supply within an urban context, especially for the building sector with large amount of energy consumption. The technical, economic and environmental feasibilities of using hybrid renewable energy and electrical energy storage systems for the power supply to both office and residential buildings are analysed based on a transient system simulation program, experiment validation and multi-objective optimization methods from our studies. A novel energy management strategy considering the battery cycling aging, grid relief and time-of-use pricing is proposed for design optimization of a photovoltaic-battery storage system applied in a practical low-energy office building. Comprehensive technical and economic criteria are developed to size and optimize the hybrid photovoltaic-wind-battery system for the power supply to high-rise residential buildings. The hybrid photovoltaic-wind system with battery and hydrogen storage technologies is optimized for hydrogen vehicles integrated buildings for proposing various decision-making strategies focusing on the priorities of different stakeholders. This study can researchers and engineers to understand and design renewable energy and electrical energy storage systems for achieving higher penetration of renewables in buildings and further reduction of carbon footprint in urban regions.

Speech Title: Sustainable solid waste disposal for developing countries: A journey to sanitary 发展中国家的可持续固体废物处理:卫生之旅

Abstract:Municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal has become an ever-increasing problem in many parts of the world, especially in developing countries such as Malaysia. Most solid waste landfill sites in these countries practice either open dumping or unsanitary landfilling with very minimum or no environmental protection. To date, landfilling is still the preferred option for the disposal and management of municipal solid waste (MSW) due to its low-cost operation.  The main issue in landfilling in developing countries is the management of landfill leachate and gases. Implementation of a fully engineered sanitary landfill is necessary, and a more economically feasible landfill design is crucial, particularly for developing countries towards achieving the goal for sustainable development.  The concept of landfill technology and aA journey to sanitary landfilling will be discussed in this presentation.  Special attention will be made on the principles of a semi-aerobic landfill in developing countries as a good alternative.  The paper also highlights the main issues in the design and operation of the sanitary landfill and discusses the associated challenges faced by the authorities and landfill operators.
