Secure, affordable, and reliable energy is essential for all aspects of modern life. It heats and lights our businesses and homes, fuels our transportation, and powers the critical infrastructure necessary to fuel a 21st century economy.
Over the next two decades, The National Academies projects that U.S. energy needs alone will grow 13 percent. Global energy consumption is expected to rise by 44 percent over the same period as world population rises and other countries improve their standard of living.
Georgia Tech researchers are developing new technologies to help meet our growing energy needs, while creating better ways to utilize current fuel sources to maximize efficiency and minimize the environmental impacts of usage.
