Integrating fossil and renewable energy systems: Optimization of integrated CO2 capture systems

Adam Brandt is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford University. He is interested in reducing the environmental impacts of energy systems; more specifically, the study of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil energy sources. This is important because fossil energy sources will continue to be key components of our energy system for decades to come.
