Proposal presentation slots are 1 hour each and will be given two weeks before. Each presenter should take only 10 minutes or less, then there will be a 10-minute Q&A.
Please submit the project proposal in an MS Word or PDF format file.

You should not propose a topic exactly the same as any of the lectures.
1. The proposal should be 5-6 pages long (including the cover page);
2. The 1st page (cover page) should include project title, lead author of the proposal, and team members, contact information (email, department/major) and date of submission.
3. The 2nd page should include a 300 - 400 words executive summary covering the key points of the proposal.
4. The following 3 to 4 pages should include the motivation (i.e., the importance of the topic in the energy industry; how the proposed work would differ and complement the past lectures; and how your classmates would be benefit from the proposed project), scope of work, proposed schedule in elapsed time, estimated workload of each team member, and potential risk.
