Lehigh University's Energy Research Center was recently awarded three projects with US and international funding. The ERC is positioned to help the energy industry meet the challenges of transforming fossil-fuel dependence. Researchers are collaborating with faculty affiliated with Lehigh's Institute for Cyber Physical Infrastructure and Energy. Projects include using solar thermal energy in 'smarter' carbon capture systems, analyzing the impact of 'cycling' on power plants' wastewater treatment processes, and developing tech for 'cleaning' coal efficiently.
