ND Energy Bouts...Fighting for Renewable Energy
Monday, August 24, 7:00 - 8:15 p.m.
If you had $100 million to donate for innovative research in the fields of solar, wind, and/or nuclear energy, how would you distribute it? Join ND Energy as we host a rematch between three prominent Notre Dame researchers who will attempt to persuade you to give them your virtual votes. The first match was held in February of 2019, when solar edged out nuclear and wind and Prashant Kamat, Rev. John A. Zahm Professor of Science, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Radiation Laboratory; Concurrent Professor, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, was crowned the ND Energy Heavy Weight Champion of Renewable Energy. Will Kamat be able to keep his title or will he lose it to another top contender?
Meet the contenders:
- Peter C. Burns, Henry Massman Professor, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences; Concurrent Professor, Chemistry and Biochemistry; Director, NNSA Actinide Center of Excellence (ACE); and Director, ND Energy (representing nuclear)
- Prashant V. Kamat, Rev. John A. Zahm Professor of Science, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Radiation Laboratory; Concurrent Professor, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (representing solar)
- Scott C. Morris, Professor, Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering; Director of Research, Notre Dame Turbomachinery Laboratory (representing wind)
Students attending this event will earn a chance to win $20 in Domer Dollars at the end of Energy Week. Details will be announced at the beginning of the program.
Registration for this event must be made no later than 5:00 p.m. on August 24. Registrants will receive updates of any changes as well as a reminder with a Zoom link to join.
