Name: NIU STEM Café: Fueling the Future with Renewable Energy
Date: May 12, 2021
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Renewable energy technologies can help to mitigate global climate change, and spinoff technologies produced by renewable energy research also profoundly impact our lifestyles. What new fuels and renewable energy technologies are being developed? Why are these technologies important? And how will they impact our daily lives? Join NIU Professor of Chemistry Tao Xu to learn more about the latest research in renewable energy. His research group is developing materials that convert sunlight to electricity and electrocatalysts that convert carbon dioxide and water into fuel, as well as other innovations. Xu will explore the art of innovation and discuss the ways in which cutting edge technologies may have unexpected effects – both positive and negative.
