Joe Pratt (in Sandia’s Energy Systems Engineering & Analysis Dept.) presented work for DOE’s Market Transformation group at two international conferences. At the Society of Automotive Engineers Aerospace Alternative Fuels and Associated Environmental Impacts Symposium in Brussels, Belgium on June 13, 2013, Joe gave a DOE-prepared talk on the work the Market Transformation group is doing in the airport and aircraft realm. At the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen for Maritime and Harbour Applications Workshop in Venice, Italy on June 14, 2013, Joe’s presentation focused on the opportunity for fuel cells to replace marine diesel generators for port and ship power, based in part on his and Aaron Harris’ report on the same topic.
