The quest for clean energy sources has been ongoing for many years with minimal results. This could all change with the development of a single device that will lie on the water’s surface and utilize the ocean waves to generate electrical power.
Dr. Akhil Datta-Gupta is using $1.2 million in funding from the Department of Energy to create a rapid and cost-effective CO2 subsurface monitoring system. This system will benefit energy companies using injected CO2 for oil recovery and power companies that store produced CO2 waste emissions.
Dr. Mladen Kezunovic, Eugene E. Webb and Regents Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University, was named a 2018 Distinguished Member of the International Council on Large Electric Systems (CIGRÉ) for his longstanding service to the organization.
The Texas A&M Energy Institute is joining the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Energy Initiative (MITEI) and the Stanford Precourt Institute for Energy to support implementation of the Department of Energy-led U.S. Clean Energy Education & Empowerment (C3E) program to advance women’s participation and leadership in clean energy.
Dr. Sam Mannan, executive director of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station's (TEES) Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center and Regents Professor in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been appointed to serve on the Department of Energy's (DOE) Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technical Advisory Committee (HTAC).
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) is leading a research team working to develop a new field laboratory in the hydrocarbon-producing geological formation known as the Eagle Ford Shale. The team, along with WildHorse Resource Development Corporation (WRD), which has been awarded an $8 million grant from the Department of Energy (DOE) for research and development of unconventional oil and natural gas recovery, will test next-generation monitoring solutions for hydraulic fracturing and enhanced oil recovery.
Dr. Mladen Kezunovic, Regents Professor and the Eugene E. Webb Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been appointed to serve on the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Electricity Advisory Committee (EAC).
The Engineering Genesis Award for Multidisciplinary Research was presented to 13 Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) researchers and their research teams during the TEES External Advisory Board meeting Nov. 10.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Smart Grid Center is part of a United States team that will use a $7.5 million Department of Energy (DOE) grant to help advance India’s power grid to ensure access to affordable and reliable energy.
