Climate change has accelerated the need for clean, domestic, renewable energy options for decentralized and off-grid communities. Research taking place at the Renewable Energy Workshop is at the forefront of experimentation and implementation of these small-scale technologies, which can dramatically improve living conditions for communities worldwide. The Renewable Energy Workshop is continually enhancing its lab in an effort to provide a space for students and program participants to gain hands-on experience working and researching the social, environmental, technological and environmental aspects of renewable energy applications.
