(Nov. 22, 2010)--To expand the UTSA Texas Sustainable Energy Research Institute and support a major CPS Energy partnership, graduate students are needed to become involved in all phases of the institute. Students are being recruited locally, nationally and internationally.
Multidisciplinary research programs will be developed in the areas of energy, water, climate change and sustainability. The programs will encompass a continuum from discovery-based research and engineering innovation to policy deliberations, economic, social science and systems analyses, education programs and other activities. Each of these programs will involve faculty and staff from multiple UTSA colleges.
The Texas Sustainable Energy Research Institute was created by UTSA to address the grand global challenges of the 21st century pertaining to energy, water, climate change and sustainability. The institute draws on expertise and capabilities from across the entire university through each college and is actively partnered with CPS Energy, the largest wholly owned public municipality in the nation, to address key energy challenges for the coming decades.
The challenges are focused on a number of themes including energy efficiency and conservation; renewable energy technology and storage; carbon capture; management and storage; a smart, secure distributed electrical grid and electrification of the transportation sector. The institute will emphasize key elements of the energy-water nexus as it relates to assuring cost-competitive, reliable supplies of energy and water to support continued economic prosperity for San Antonio, Texas and the nation.
