Alternative Energy

Economies everywhere are keen to find energy sources that are sustainable, secure and environmentally friendly. Our researchers are actively investigating emerging energy sources as well as technologies for harvesting, transmitting, using and storing renewable energies, and minimizing their environmental impacts.

Alternative energy research by its nature requires a cross disciplinary efforts to identify new energy sources and convert them into a useable form. Our scholars from a variety of specialties in the Faculties of Engineering and Science are collaborating closely on areas of growing importance and opportunity like salinity gradient power, energy recovery and storage, and biomass energy. We aim to promote collaboration with international and mainland research communities in developing new technologies that will help mankind use energy and natural resources in a cleaner and more sustainable way.
