AUG. 3, 2016 — The Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) is pleased to announce it has launched a new website to unite the numerous energy scholars on the University of Illinois’ Urbana-Champaign campus.
Illinois is known for its scholars across dozens of disciplines, who are willing to work across campus to solve the issues the world faces in creating a secure and sustainable energy future — and “Energy at Illinois” (energy.illinois.edu) is the new access point for energy-related research, collaborations conducted across campus.
The website showcases Illinois scholars’ research and engagement programs spread across the continuum of energy from its generation to end user:
- Production / Harvesting , including renewables, fossil fuels, and nuclear;
- Delivery, including physical and wired transmission;
- Storage, including fuel cells and batteries; and
- Demand / Conversion, including motors and residential, commercial and industry use of energy.
In addition, Energy at Illinois has individual pages for eight issue-focused, cross-cutting energy research areas. On all 12 of these research strengths pages, individual scholars are listed with links to their profiles and work, making it easy to find research collaborators and expert sources.
The site serves as a “front porch” to various energy centers on the Urbana-Champaign campus and that Illinois collaborates in across the nation and overseas — as well as to faculty-led research groups, state surveys, and academic units featuring energy research.
Finally, Energy at Illinois will be a repository for opportunities in the energy field, including those for funding, education, and jobs. And when funding opportunities arise, iSEE stands ready to help build teams of Energy Scholars — and to organize and submit large interdisciplinary research grant applications involving multiple campus units.
