Wittich Energy Sustainability Research Symposium
Tuesday October 4, 2011 | Tufts University
Two decades ago, Tufts became the first university in the nation to create an environmental policy that set the highest possible standard for sustainability research and practice. Today, the Sustainability focus within the School of Engineering at Tufts revolves around work in three interrelated areas: Sustainable Water, Alternative Energy and Energy Systems, and Structural Health and Risk Assessment.
The Wittich Family Fund for Alternative Energy Research supports Tufts Engineering faculty who are exploring new methods to convert light and heat into energy, store and transfer energy more efficiently, and manage the distribution of energy more effectively. This symposium highlights the findings from the laboratories of Marc Hodes, Jeff Hopwood, Kyongbum Lee, Matthew Panzer, Sameer Sonkusale and Thomas Vandervelde. The Tufts Hybrid Racing reports on its activities.
