An Aeroponic Greenhouse and Anaerobic Digester: Linking sustainability with research and education on Clarkson University’s campus
Professor Jeffrey Bergthorson in the Department of Mechanical Engineering has been named the first Panda Faculty Scholar in Sustainable Engineering and Design at the Trottier Institute for Sustainability in Engineering and Design (TISED). Also recently appointed Associate Director of TISED, Prof Bergthorson began a 3-year term in both roles on January 1, 2015.
The Trottier Institute for Sustainability in Engineering and Design (TISED) is pleased to announce that Dr.
This event, co-hosted by TISED and GERAD, will touch upon how energy storage technologies embedded within the electricity supply chain may be socially acceptable, economically viable and environmentally sound. Audience members will learn about the driving and opposing forces for developing storage as part of future sustainable electric power systems.
"Rapid innovation and growth in renewable energy", a talk by MIT's Jessica Trancik
Renewable energy technologies have sustained high growth rates over the past 30 years , with solar and wind energy production growing at roughly 30% per year, due to a combination of technology cost improvement and public policy incentives.
Talks by MIT speaker John Reilly and CEA speaker Jim Burpee
"Prospects and Challenges for High Penetration of Renewable Energy", John Reilly, MIT
Renewables electricity sources are a seemingly attractive low-carbon option to substitute for coal or gas generation. Regional availability of high quality wind and solar resources varies, but at least in the United States, most regions have significant resources. Expanding the options to biomass, hydroelectricity, and geothermal creates greater opportunities.
