Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership catalyzes and seeds projects that bring Princeton University’s research strengths to bear on problems of importance to companies that work in the energy and environmental sectors. The entries below provide information about funding opportunities, as well as updates on ongoing and past projects.
A novel way to cool and dehumidify buildings, and a mass social media experiment aiming to reduce energy use are two research projects that have received funding from Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership this year. E-ffiliates, a corporate membership initiative of Princeton University’s Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, facilitates academic and industrial collaboration, enhances teacher-student-practitioner interactions […]
Evolving yeast strains to develop better biofuels, primarily isobutanol, as a substitute for ethanol, and building a new wind turbine device by pairing a piezoelectric element to a Helmholtz resonator to generate power from the wind are the two collaborative faculty-industry research projects awarded funding by Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership this year.
Studying large underwater turbines that capture the kinetic energy of ocean tides and generate electric power, and developing a closed cell zinc bromine battery for low-cost, long-life energy storage are the research projects awarded funding this year by Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership.
Increasing the reliability of New Jersey’s emerging solar power network and improving the durability of an environmentally-friendly type of concrete are among the research projects awarded funding this year by Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership.
Turning municipal solid waste into fuel and reducing greenhouse gases emitted in making concrete are the first two innovations funded by the recently established Princeton Energy and Environment Corporate Affiliates Program.
