Energy

Research

Energy is an important topic and an increasing priority - locally, globally and everywhere in between. 
Our efforts span every level of energy research, from the design and manufacture of highly efficient energy conversion/storage materials and devices to their effective use in industrial processes, power systems and their impact on energy policy.

Research Corporation for Science Advancement begins a new initiative and names ME professor as one of the 50 fellows. 

Congratulations to David Kwabi for receiving this honor for all the exemplary work he has done. 

The new tool could enable the design of more efficient sustainable energy and chemistry technologies.

This award, endowed by engineering alumnus Larry Miller, is set up to recognize junior faculty members.

U-M ME PhD Student, Jeffrey Smith, and Professor Don Siegel have a paper titled, "Low-temperature paddlewheel effect in glassy solid electrolytes," published in Nature Communications. 

 

 

"Students want to be part of a bigger solution and conversation about how we can move toward more sustainable energy generation and use."
