Currently we are facing serious issues related to global warming due to the excessive use of coal and petroleum. Researchers are collaborating to work on a new porous polymer that can store natural gas, a cleaner alternative, more effectively than anything currently being used.
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.
A team lead by Dr. Kate Davis from the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station received a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to support the research, development and demonstration of next-generation tools and technologies to improve the cybersecurity and resilience of the nation's critical energy infrastructure.
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. Yu Ding, the Mike and Sugar Barnes Professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Texas A&M University has made a big impact in the wind energy industry with his use of data science to model wind turbine performance and quantify potential upgrades.
The Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA) recently signed a collaborative research agreement with the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Smart Grid Center and the center’s extension in Qatar on the study, “Optimizing KAHRAMAA’s Smart Grid Capabilities and Setting its Future Roadmap.”
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.
