Energy Research Day

Showcasing Ingenuity

More than 60 graduate and doctoral students shared cutting-edge research taking place in various UH labs during the 2023 Energy Research Day. Presented by UH Energy, the UH Graduate School and the UH Division of Research, Energy Research Day featured presentations that addressed the gamut of energy issues and challenges – from energy poverty to carbon capture and storage, from solid-state batteries to robotics and more. The event not only highlighted the ingenuity that will drive the industry forward but more importantly, it was an introduction to the future energy leaders who will be responsible for shaping the future of energy for years to come.

“UH has been doing a lot of work in the energy space for a long time. If you ask most people in the industry and the outside world, they’ll tell you that it’s the best-kept secret in Houston,” UH Vice President for Energy and Innovation Ramanan Krishnamoorti said. “We are trying to change that by highlighting the work that our students, faculty and researchers do across all aspects of energy.The biggest asset we have is our people. We wanted to find a way to shine a light on them and provide more opportunities for the energy community to get to know the people behind the work.”

We thank the Division of Research and Graduate School for their partnership through this event.
