TEXT SIZE

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

Concrete evidence

Julia Maresca, an assistant professor in UD's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is conducting research aimed at identifying bacteria that can serve as an early damage-detection system in concrete.

Stink bugs

Researchers are taking a closer look at how brown marmorated stink bugs are causing damage to developing ears of sweet corn, and their findings could lead to better pest management strategies.

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.
