photocatalytic water turbine

In late 2021, the College of Engineering created an Energy Task Force charged with assessing existing energy-related activities at the University of Michigan, suggesting new initiatives to increase engagement, and recommending steps to catalyze strengths at the institution. The paramount and unanimous conclusion of the Task Force was to immediately create an Institute for Energy Solutions to address the needs and opportunities to strengthen our efforts on advancing global energy solutions.
