GCEP Director Lynn Orr
highlighted research activities and reviewed results from the first five years of this Project in a lecture entitled, “GCEP—Research to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions.”
GCEP is a $225-million effort that seeks new solutions to providing the energy the world needs in a way that protects the environment. Its wide-ranging research portfolio includes efforts that investigate the materials science of photovoltaics, the growth and conversion of biomass, the development of better batteries, high-efficiency energy conversions in fuel cells, advanced combustion, and carbon capture and storage. Professor Orr discussed how GCEP research contributes to potential pathways for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy use. His talk was followed by a discussion on future directions for GCEP led by a panel of distinguished experts in the area of energy research.
