President Obama highlights solar fuel research in State of the Union address
Among strong remarks on climate and renewable energy sources during his State of the Union address Tuesday, President Barack Obama made direct mention of solar fuels research.
Northwestern University is home to two centers working towards this goal: the Argonne-Northwestern Solar Energy Research Center (ANSER) and the Solar Fuels Institute (SOFI), both portfolio centers of the Institute for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern (ISEN).
President Obama also highlighted this work during his visit to Northwestern last October.
