Mass Energy Lab is committed to continuously seeking knowledge and innovation that can contribute to energy waste reduction in commercial and industrial buildings.This fall, Mass Energy Lab will sponsor a contest for graduate and undergraduate students in Massachusetts to identify and research cutting-edge, new-to-market energy efficiency solutions that can impact the built environment. Research projects should explore the technical performance of the subject solution,as well as the marketability of the solution in the region. Participants are expected to provide a detailed explanation of the product’s functionality and a thorough market analysis that relays the solution’s potential for market penetration. Participants may enter the contest individually or in groups of up to two people.

On August 4th communities across Massachusetts will engage in a day of action to call for an end to taxpayer support of deadly energy like coal, natural gas, and oil that wreak havoc on our health, environment, and climate. Subsidies that impede community based solutions at the time when we need them most. How could ending fossil fuel subsidies support your local work? Join us in taking action on August 4th to demonstrate how ending subsidies to deadly energy will improve our communities. Whether it’s shutting down coal plants, installing solar panels, fighting corruption, or weatherizing a house, we will voice our opposition to funding the richest companies at the expense of our health and wellbeing.
