Welcome Kody Powell as EGI Affiliate Faculty

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Kody Powell has joined EGI as affiliate faculty. Powell is an assistant professor with the University of Utah Department of Chemical Engineering and has been with the University of Utah since 2016. After completing his PhD at the University of Texas at Austin in 2013, he worked briefly with ExxonMobil on process optimization before returning to academia. His research interests focus on decarbonization, reducing energy usage and CO2 outputs, and high-level modeling of complex energy systems that include the impact of renewable resources. Besides his appointment at the University of Utah, Powell is Director of the Intermountain Industrial Assessment Center, one of the Department of Energy’s Industrial Assessment Centers. The Center provides no-cost energy usage and efficiency assessments to local industry. IIAC recently received recognition as the 2020 Center of Excellence from the Department of Energy. Powell will collaborate in energy efficiency, optimization, renewable energy technologies, artificial intelligence, and machine learning projects as EGI expands its research deeper into energy efficiency and renewable resources, our next contribution in the energy transition.
