Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, Memorial University
Dr. Greg Naterer’s work lies within the realm of thermodynamics and energy, where he believes tools can be created to overcome or recover the significant lost energy that exists in today’s technologies. He has made major contributions to the fields of clean energy systems, hydrogen, and heat transfer, including over 390 journal and conference papers, 6 patents, and 3 textbooks in these fields. He uses leading edge technologies to improve energy efficiency in power generation and distribution systems, from fluid systems to heat exchangers. Dr. Naterer is leading an international consortium of university and industry partners, including Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, to develop the world's first ever copper-chlorine cycle of thermochemical water splitting for hydrogen production from nuclear or solar energy. Hydrogen is a clean energy carrier and potentially major solution to climate change.
Dr. Naterer is a Fellow of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME), American Society for Mechanical Engineering (ASME) and Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC). He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Waterloo in 1995.
