Nikhil Dhawan is a mechanical engineering senior at Georgia Tech and is also pursuing a minor in Energy Systems. He serves a key role in the operations team of the Energy Club at Georgia Tech, which involves securing funding from organizations for club events. He has also been involved in the organization of the 3rd Annual Energy Expo at Georgia Tech, a conference that provides a platform for students to connect to, and network with energy industry representatives from organizations such as Shell, Empower Generation, as well as witness keynote speeches from faculty and professionals involved in all facets of Energy. Throughout his academic journey at Georgia Tech, he has performed undergraduate research in Perovskite Solar Cells, designed a net-energy positive solar-powered home, and is currently engaged in simulations of Hybrid Electric Vehicle Powertrains to further his desire of a cleaner transportation system. The experience of growing up in India, and traveling extensively throughout his childhood has taught him the valuable lesson that, though each community of people may have different energy needs and as a result different challenges associated with those needs, the solutions to all of those diverse issues lie in the technology, policy, and business aspects of energy working together in synergy, to develop meaningful and lasting systems to tackle these issues. To accomplish this, requires a heavy investment in today’s youth, and he aspires to lead this movement to a cleaner and more energy-secure future.
