Poster Hall

Energy Systems Research Posters

Here you can find the complete research poster listings from all the talented students and postdoctoral fellows participating in the 2021 Future Energy Systems Research Symposium.

Browse through the diverse topics, and find links to each poster presenter's Twitter, where their poster will be available for viewing and you can ask questions and discuss the research!

Poster Competition

The 2021 Future Energy Systems Research Symposium is aimed at sharing your research with the world. How well you describe your research and how accessible you can make it is key to communicating research beyond your field.

Therefore, this year the winners of the poster competition will be assessed by audience vote. 

Each person can vote for up to three posters they found particularly interesting, impactful, or both!
