When assistant professor of technology, Dr. Bijandra Kumar, joined Elizabeth City State University in September 2017, he brought with him research on the cutting edge of sustainable technology.
Kumar’s goal as an academic researcher is to find the most efficient means to use renewable energy such as solar power. Storing the collected energy has been a challenge, he says.
“My work is to find a way to store energy,” said Kumar.
Kumar’s research was recently published in “The Journal of Material Chemistry-A,” outlining a method of solar energy storage using carbon dioxide (CO2), one of the most abundant greenhouse gases.
