OKED leader has sunny outlook on sustainable energy in Arizona
Sethuraman "Panch" Panchanathan discusses energy research in his latest column in The Arizona Republic. Panchanathan is the senior vice president for ASU's Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development.
Panchanathan describes the importance of developing and advancing sustainable and affordable sources of energy. He provides examples of how ASU researchers are working in related areas, such as renewable fuels from algae and cyanobacteria, solar panels and photovoltaics, as well as the work happening with policymakers to ensure that our legal, social and economic systems can support renewable energy solutions.
"Ensuring our future energy supply will require a suite of solutions, not a one-size-fits-all answer,” said Panchanathan.
