Cal Energy Corps interns have been hard at work both in-person and remotely with their host organizations! As the 2021 program draws to a close, they have officially wrapped up their projects and tasks. Let’s take one last look at the work some of our interns accomplished.
Dr. Sergio Castellanos Rodriguez, former researcher at CIEE and currently an Assistant Professor at UT Austin, recently released a paper which focuses on equitable transportation electrification in Oakland, CA in The Sustainable Cities and Society journal based on research conducted during his time at CIEE.
CIEE and the Center for Law, Energy & Environment, seek to identify and recommend for California Public Utilities Commission selection, non-utility technical panel members to serve on the expedited interconnection dispute resolution (EIDR) Technical Panel as needed.
On March 31, 2021, the Hamilton project came to a close after four and a half years. Named after Alexander Hamilton, whose portrait appears on the ten-dollar bill, the project developed a modular, open-source, low-cost wireless sensor system to enable energy-efficient building operations for only ten dollars.
Professor Sascha von Meier gave a presentation for the US DOE’s Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO)’s webinar series on projects that are working to enable greater solar energy integration in the electric grid.
“This last year has highlighted the need for supporting the most vulnerable, low-resource communities around the world, especially in the face of difficult, uncertain times.” Samantha Hing reflects on how the Art Rosenfeld Award has impacted her research activities on energy-efficient cookstoves.
CIEE will be presenting as part of a two-day webinar series hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office on June 24–25. Utilities, researchers, and solar industry stakeholders are encouraged to attend.
We are pleased to announce Taryn Fransen as the recipient of the 2021 Art Rosenfeld Award for Energy Efficiency!
