Students from Arizona's three public universities gathered at the Arizona Student Energy Conference (AzSEC) at Arizona State University to discuss the future of renewable energy science. Students presented cutting-edge research which included work on new photovoltaic technologies, the power grid system, and new programs dealing with energy policy and its implementation. The annual conference is made possible by ASU LightWorks.
ASU College of Technology and Innovation faculty are partnering with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) to further implement renewable solar photovoltaic energy system certification programs in West African countries. The ASU/IRENA team plans to provide the training needed to meet the demand for solar energy technicians in these developing nations.
