Innovation aside, the whole entity of civilization depends on energy. Where energy supplies deplete, nations implode, wars explode and suffering corrodes. With a finite supply of fossil fuels and an exponential increase in demand for energy, the Grand Technion Energy Program (GTEP) is presently completing a decade of intense multidisciplinary activity. In these ten years, GTEP has grown from proof of concept to a veritable virtual and physical global hive of energy innovation. Spanning faculties, universities and continents, GTEP’s network of scientists and facilities also has deep inroads into industry, pioneering, for example, the cultivation of expertise to harvest Israel’s newly found natural gas reserves.
The GTEP Graduate Studies Program attracts highly motivated graduates in science and engineering who are also required to carry out a research project. The program is designed to produce leaders in all energy-related fields.
GTEP is active in four dimensions: Alternative Fuels, Energy Storage and Conversion, Renewable Energy Sources, and Energy Conservation.
