UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory are part of a team whose breakthrough in fuel cell and hydrogen technology recently was awarded $2 million in funding from the US Department of Energy.
The US Department of Energy has chosen a project led by UT–Oak Ridge National Laboratory Governor’s Chair for Electrical Energy Conversion and Storage Thomas Zawodzinski as one of 10 recipients of Advanced Research Projects Agency–Energy grants.
Microgrids can be thought of as small-scale power stations, connected to one another in a way that mimics our current power grids.
Microgrid technology now being refined will make it less likely for power to go off and, if it does, allow it to be restored much quicker.
Two faculty members in the Tickle College of Engineering have received Early Career Awards from the Department of Energy for their work in nuclear fusion and structural materials for nuclear energies, respectively.

Swimmers, tubers, and boaters often have the same question when they are in or around the water: what exactly is down there? UT’s Henry Goodrich Chair of Excellence Thanos Papanicolaou has helped solve that riddle by developing a way for researchers to see underwater sediment and predict its likelihood for mobility.
The US Navy has chosen a UT professor to lead one of its Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative programs.
UT is a partner in the research and development of materials and structures for reusable hypersonic vehicles to travel at speeds greater than five times the speed of sound.
