Forging Innovative Connections and Discoveries in Energy Research
The expertise of over 350 energy-related faculty and researchers and over 30 energy centers and programs at UT facilitates an integrated, systems-oriented approach to meeting the energy challenges of today and the future. This diverse research footprint, which we call Energy@UT, is pioneering novel ways to enable energy sustainability – from state-of-the art technology for mitigating methane emissions to next generation anode materials for battery storage to radically smarter management of water resources in energy production.
From developing the next generation of battery packs and new solar-powered water purification systems to designing and optimizing techniques for carbon capture, these EI-funded projects attack a broad range of key issues that are critical to a sustainable energy transition.
Many of the world’s top energy researchers call The University of Texas at Austin home, with more than 300 energy experts at work in schools, colleges and research centers dispersed across the UT campus.
