Battery and Energy Storage Workshop on December 16, 2010
December 14, 2010
We anticipate a DOE Hub large scale funding opportunity in ‘Battery and Energy Storage’ during next several months. We have arranged an internal half-day meeting on December 16 (1:00 to 4:30 pm; MRGN 129) to share our research/technical capabilities plus information gathered from the DOE. Both the Energy Center and the Birck Nanotechnology Center are coordinating this half-day event. The meeting will consist of brief research presentations by participants followed by an open discussion. An expected outcome would be to discuss internally – a way to move forward.
The details for technical areas are not yet known. But a typical large Hub proposal may require addressing several additional topics such as manufacturing, outreach/learning, technology commercialization/entrepreneurship, policy, consumer, economics and social sciences. It may therefore provide opportunity for a broader participation across the campus and some faculty may be aware of this activity and interested to attend the event.
Please rsvp to Jill Wable (firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested in attending. We have a limited space for about 30 people to attend.

Groups of high schoolers eagerly lined up Tuesday morning at Purdue University to test how well their handcrafted wind turbines would perform when stacked against the power of four fans. The kids were competing to create a turbine that would generate the most energy as a part of a challenge for the Duke Energy Academy at Purdue. The annual academy, now in its fifth year, brings in U.S. high school students to learn about renewable energy with hopes they'll be inspired to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields and solve energy challenges. "We want these students to be the leaders of tomorrow," said Pankaj Sharma, managing director of the Purdue Energy Center and Global Sustainability Institute. The academy lasts throughout the week and is hosting 52 students and 27 teachers from mainly Indiana schools, though about 20 percent come from outside states, said Tolu Omotoso, a civil engineering graduate student and coordinator for the academy.Read Full Story
