The world runs on energy. AAU universities are helping ensure our nation's, and the world's, energy security with scientific discoveries, technological breakthroughs, and the education of the next generation of energy problem solvers.
Faculty and students are addressing such research challenges as finding new and sustainable energy sources, improving energy storage and distribution, achieving greater energy conservation and efficiency, and understanding social and behavioral factors affecting the way we manage and consume energy.
This is the fourth in a series on AAU university research that addresses major societal issues. The first three topics are Helping Solve the Fresh Water Puzzle, Helping Safeguard the Connected World, and Researching the Brain, Seeking Cures.
