9:14 a.m., Feb. 12, 2014--The U.S. Department of Energy’s Susan Huang will discuss solar advancements at “Terawatt Challenge,” a solar workshop hosted by the University of Delaware Energy Institute on Friday, Feb. 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Clayton Hall.

Huang, a UD alumna and research scientist in the field of silicon based photovoltaics, is principal scientist and technical adviser of the DOE’s SunShot Initiative, which aims to make solar energy cost-competitive with other forms of electricity by the end of the decade.

Research Stories

Penguin chicks

UD oceanographers recently reported a connection between local weather conditions and the weight of Adélie penguin chicks in Marine Ecology Progress Series, a top marine ecology journal.

Biomedical grant opportunities

Two of UD's NIH Center for Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) programs have issued calls for grant applications from UD researchers. Proposals are due by Nov. 14.

The workshop will also highlight cutting-edge energy research by UD faculty and industry experts and provide participants with networking opportunities to develop collaborations.

Research areas to be covered range from development of high efficiency silicon based solar cells, to low cost multi-junction cells and approaches to increased efficiency solar energy conversion. 

Representatives from industry, government, academia, and UD faculty and students interested in attending should register by Feb. 24.
