NC State University will host its inaugural Energy Week Oct. 19-23. This week of virtual events aims to increase visibility of the university’s energy use, research and opportunity to shape a clean energy future.
Fittingly, Energy Week comes just weeks after NC State was named among the top 10 “Energy Elite” universities in the country by the American Energy Society.
Energy Week events have been planned by a team of students, faculty and staff representing the Energy Collaborative, Sustainability Office, FREEDM Systems Center, NC State University Libraries, Student Energy Club, NC State Stewards, Arts NC State, Poole College of Management Business Sustainability Collaborative and the Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster.
Browse the Energy Week events below and RSVP today. Most events will be recorded and available for on-demand viewing after the event.
