Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Renewable Energy Diversification

Renewable energy will soon become a large source of power production in the world. However, implementation of certain technologies does not make sense in different parts of the world (i.e. hydroelectric power in the Sahara). This project would involve researching the advantages and disadvantages of renewable energy implementation in different parts of the world or your country of origin.

Economic Carbon Capture

Various carbon capture technologies are beginning to emerge as a way to continue using fossil fuels while capturing the carbon dioxide they produce in combustion. However, there are very few implementations of these technologies in industry. This project involve researching different types of carbon capture technologies and the economic barriers to implementing them. You then could suggest ways to overcome those barriers from an economic or government policy perspective.

Battery Storage

Batteries are proving to be a great way to store large amounts of energy from intermittent renewable sources. This project could involve researching current battery technologies and showing how much battery storage a city (or state/province) would need to run 100% off of renewable sources.
