Energy Sustainability on Campus
The purpose of this seminar is to learn about energy sustainability by touring various parts of the New Brunswick campuses including a solar farm, co-generation facility, energy efficient building, a research center that conducts research on off-shore wind, and a distributed generation/micro grid computer data center. The plan is to have five, two-hour classes, which will allow for four mini-field trips at multiple locations throughout the campus. In addition, a trip to a nuclear power plant combined with another group of students will be offered to Byrne seminar students. Drawing from the professor’s research, which includes an active research agenda for the State of New Jersey on renewable resources, energy efficiency, and other energy policies, discussions will focus on the State's energy policies in tandem with the various site visits.
