Energy-X Lab. (Energy eXploration Laboratory) is a research group that specializes in energy science and technology. The increasing global demand for energy has stimulated intense research on energy conversion and storage systems. Our group explores to improve energy efficiency, reliability, and economy of the process, component or system X; with X being our target technological area which spans from the energy sector to environmental applications.
Michigan Tech University, established in 1885 as the Michigan Mining School to support the copper and iron mining industry in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, is one of the U.S. premier technological universities.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics (MEEM) supports approximately 1500 undergraduate students and 350 graduate students and has a reputation of developing “hands-on” student talent. Within the department, Energy-X is an experimental test laboratory focused on fundamentals of phase-change heat transfer and advanced HVAC&R/appliance technologies.
