Texas Tech University President M. Duane Nellis spoke about Texas Tech's expanding national energy research role during the Accelerate Energy Productivity 2030 Summit today (Sept. 16) in Washington, D.C.

Nellis focused on Texas Tech's work in areas such as pulsed power, wind energy, microgrids and cybersecurity.

“It was an honor to be included in this national dialogue as we work to create greater visibility for Texas Tech and build greater partnerships with industry and government entities,” Nellis said.

The summit, which included a keynote address by U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, brought together representatives from government, major industry and selected universities. It was the culmination of a series of regional dialogues.

A major agenda item for the summit was the unveiling of a roadmap that details how the U.S. could double its energy production by 2030, a goal of President Barack Obama.
