Date: May 18, 2016
Location: Maeder Hall
This special three-day event will showcase the stunning new Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment building and will feature some of the center’s latest research in innovative energy and environmental technologies. The building – with its gardens, green roofs, natural lighting and ventilation, water recycling, radiant heating and cooling, high-tech facilities, and collaborative spaces – is a physical reminder of the center’s mission to preserve the planet through cross-disciplinary research on sustainable energy and environmental solutions.
Several leaders in energy science and industry are on the roster as speakers. Andlinger Center faculty will present research on energy storage, energy-efficient building systems, nuclear fusion, biofuels, solar cells, and other topics. Students and postdocs will also be presenting their research in a poster session at the event.
“This event continues the vibrant dialogue happening within the Andlinger Center: how do we harvest and use energy in a sustainable way considering the context and connections between energy, environment, economics, behavior, and policy.”
– Emily Carter, founding director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, the Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor in Energy and the Environment, and professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and applied and computational mathematics.
Registration is closed.
