Energy Generation & Storage Conference - Richardson
Energy plays a major role in the US and global economies. Seven of the top ten companies in Fortune’s Global 500 are directly involved with energy. Energy is critical to each of us in our daily lives, and energy expenditures account for about 8% of GDP worldwide.
Although the energy industry broadly includes petroleum and natural gas ex- ploration and production, this Research and New Venture Showcase will be fo- cused on ground-breaking research and new developments in the generation and storage of electrical energy. A subsequent program, planned for Spring 2012, will focus on electrical energy transmission, utilization and efficiency.
On October 21, 2011, UT Dallas researchers and industry participants will address developments impacting solar power, wind energy, storage integration and the design of advanced electronics used in the management and control of electricity.
