Center for Sustainable Energy at Notre Dame

Sustainable Energy Network

The Sustainable Energy Network (SEN), sponsored by ND Energy, consists of departments and organizations across campus who have common interests in sustainable energy issues and topics. The goal of the network is to provide an avenue for important information sharing and collaborations with a strong focus on combining resources to strengthen University-sponsored initiatives and events and create a greater impact on local, regional, national, and international relationships. 

Network members are listed below with the organizations they represent.
