Georgia Tech Partners for Energy Tech Projects
Georgia Institute of Technology and Siemens Energy formalized their commitment to collaborate on solutions to meet the increasing demand for energy in an economically and environmentally sustainable manner.
With the inauguration of the Innovation Center earlier this year, Siemens Energy announced its intention to expand its work with research universities on a broad range of energy technologies. The master research agreement will allow Georgia Tech and Siemens Energy to conduct joint research, as well as openly support each other’s independent research and development work. The two organizations have a decades-long history of collaboration on energy projects, particularly focused on design, materials, manufacturing, and gas turbine combustion.
“Georgia Tech is honored to work with our longtime partner Siemens Energy on research central to the future of energy and sustainability,” said Chaouki T. Abdallah, executive vice president for Research at Georgia Tech in a statement. “We are pleased to build on our decades of work together and we look forward to collaborating on solutions that will expand economic opportunity, address existential challenges, and improve human lives.”
The first project under the agreement will focus on technologies to enable the flexible use of hydrogen-based fuels and reduce the carbon footprint of other energy sources. In the future, joint projects may focus on government-funded projects, particularly those related to the development of the hydrogen economy. The agreement will also allow Georgia Tech to conduct contract work in support of Siemens Energy-led research projects, and Siemens Energy to more effectively serve as an industrial advisory board member for Georgia Tech’s research initiatives.
