Energy plays a critical role in maintaining a clean environment and a healthy economy. As population growth and developing economies continue to drive global energy needs, Georgia Tech is focused on creating solutions to support more efficient energy generation and use.
Powering Up Renewables
Researchers are developing energy storage innovations — and ways to integrate them into existing systems — that will make renewables less expensive and more reliable.
Lowering the World’s Carbon Footprint
Not just wind and solar, but more accessible and affordable biomass, hydropower, and geothermal are in the sights of Tech researchers to reduce the use of fossil fuels and increase energy security.
Fueling New Interest in Nuclear
Georgia Tech researchers are developing safer, more efficient methods for converting heat generated from nuclear reactions into clean, reliable, and affordable energy.
Creating Energy from Motion
A power management and storage system under development could dramatically improve the efficiency of triboelectric generators that harvest energy from human motions such as walking and running.
