Hosted annually by the UC Irvine Advanced Power and Energy Program for over 20 years, ICEPAG 2021 supports the annual presentation of technologies, applications, and the important role of hydrogen in smart grid and smart mobility. The 3-day hybrid virtual/in-person Colloquium will provide a valued balance of academia, industry, national laboratories, and government agencies actively engaged in the evolution of hydrogen associated with this new paradigm.

Using a virtual/in-person colloquium format, ICEPAG:

  • Combines a collection of tutorials and professional presentations.

  • Provides extended question and answer periods to facilitate discussion.

  • Presents a platform to share the interests of industry, regulators, academia, and practicing professionals.

  • In-person format will be dependent on UC Irvine COVID-19 policy.

What Makes This A Must-Attend Virtual/In-Person Event?
