Siemens Energy and Georgia Tech Sign Agreement to Focus on Energy Technology Development
At a signing ceremony at Siemens Energy’s Innovation Center-Orlando, Siemens Energy and the Georgia Institute of Technology this week formalized their commitment to collaborate on solutions to meet society’s 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 leading 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 around design, materials, manufacturing, and gas turbine combustion.
Georgia Tech Hydrogen Activities
The Georgia Institute of Technology has a broad range of testbeds, industry partnerships, and federal programs across the hydrogen value chain, including hydrogen production, storage/transport, and utilization. Georgia Tech is also focused on developing diverse STEM talent for such industries.
Direct Air Capture Center (DirACC)
The Direct Air Capture Center (DirACC) is the culmination of more than a decade of research at Georgia Tech to develop materials and processes that extract carbon dioxide (CO2) directly from the atmosphere. Climate models suggest that negative emissions technologies (NETs) will need to be developed and deployed in order to stabilize the climate. With several recent awards, Georgia Tech researchers have launched the Direct Air Capture Center (DirACC). DirACC will create a forum for collaborative research on NETs and DAC, bringing together researchers from across the Institute working in energy, sustainability, policy, and related fields.
