Department of Energy to Host Webinar on Campus Microgrids

February 18, 2014

The Higher Education Associations Sustainability Consortium (HEASC), of which NAICU is a member, is hosting a webinar, DOE + Campus Microgrids, on February 19, 2014, from 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Eastern, in conjunction with the Department of Energy. HEASC is an informal network of higher education associations committed to advancing sustainability within their membership and within the higher education system overall.

HEASC members meet on a quarterly basis by phone and once a year in person to collaborate, share best practices, and initiate new ideas to advance sustainability. This webinar is part of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education’s (AASHE) recently launched 2014 calendar of professional development webinars.

Efforts to conserve resources are not only good for our environment, but could impact the bottom lines of our institutions, while also reflecting your civic missions.

Washington Update will keep members apprised of the efforts of the consortium, as well as provide information we hope you will find helpful in your campus sustainability endeavors. Targeted to faculty, presidents, and planners, the webinars will each feature experts in the growing field of sustainability, as well as resources for campus implementation.

The webinar is being offered free to AASHE members. If you are not sure about your AASHE membership status contact or search their member directory.
