Research Highlights: 

Energy is a topic of global importance that will continue to increase in priority in the coming years. Efforts at the U-M span the entire hierarchy of energy research, from the design and manufacture of highly efficient energy conversion/storage materials and devices to their effective utilization in power systems and consequent impact on energy policy.
