Clean Energy in California

Not your typical spring break trip
by -- February 28th, 2012

This Friday marks the beginning of spring break at the Nicholas School. While many of our peers will be relaxing on the beach, hitting the slopes, and generally getting some hard-earned R&R, a group of students in the Energy and the Environment concentration will be exploring the intricacies of the clean energy industry. On Sunday, the group will head to San Francisco, California to begin a whirlwind tour of some of the state’s extensive renewable energy installations. We will see first hand how clean energy sources like wind, solar, geothermal, and nuclear can be integrated into the grid. We will hear from industry experts on a host of energy topics including demand response, electric vehicles, energy efficiency, biomimicry, energy policy, and the smart grid. Tune in next week for daily updates on our trip!
