As part of an interdisciplinary team from UMass Lowell, Ertan contributed to the report, entitled “The Viability of Implementing Hydrogen in Massachusetts”. The key results of this study were presented in “Future of Hydrogen for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Workshop”.

Congratulations to Joe Egitto for successfully defending his master’s thesis! Joe also received the Energy Engineering Outstanding Master Student Award!!! Joe is leaving the group to start his new career as an Enterprise Solutions Engineer at NECI (New England Controls). We wish him best of luck.

Ertan gave an invited talk on our lab’s flow battery projects in the Graduate Seminar Series of the Mechanical and Energy Engineering at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis.

Ertan gave a presentation on the non-aqueous redox flow battery project at the I Meeting on Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage Devices organized by the University Carlos III of Madrid.

Ceren and Ertan publish a paper in collaboration with Cappillino and Mayes Groups from UMass Dartmouth entitled “Designing high energy density flow batteries by tuning active-material thermodynamics” in RSC Advances. Congrats!!!

We are excited to announce that our research proposal in collaboration with Prof. Fuqiang Liu and Prof. Xinfang Jin on High Energy Density Flow Batteries for Naval Installations on Shore and Shipboard Applications has been funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR). Congratulations to the team!!!
