Trainee gains unique experience in IGERT program

Three opportunities were: First, In the 2008 calendar year, building on the success of other years, he was awarded a ThinkSwiss Research Scholarship for renewable energy research at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland (with visits to ETH-Zurich and EWEAG). Second, he presented papers in a series of conferences in Europe (including the Energizing Markets Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark) and a planned presentation at Global Energy Basel (the organization invited him to the conference to award him the Young Energy Pioneer Award). Third, he contributed to the work conducted by the X PRIZE Foundation, creating a prize organization and spearheading the development of incentive prizes in the areas of energy and the environment.
