“It’s really astounding how carbon dioxide emissions have been cut,” says Anthony Kovscek, while Sally Benson notes how California pioneered energy efficiency after the 1970s energy crisis.
Usua Amanam, a PhD candidate in energy resources engineering, discusses the experiences that led him to pursue research with professor Tony Kovscek.
Stanford will soon be home to two new Department of Energy-funded Energy Frontier Research Centers, aimed at transforming the way energy is generated, transformed, stored and used.
