ND Energy Announces Plans for Energy Week 2016

Energy Week Logo

A full slate of energy-related events is being scheduled for the week of Oct. 2 as ND Energy prepares for its annual Energy Week. Celebrating its 10th year, the week will feature academic lectures and interactive events with the goal of increasing awareness of energy issues. This year’s emphasis will be on our own campus and many of the initiatives Notre Dame is undertaking to tackle the energy challenges here and around the world. Energy Week will also kick-off the Solar Series, an educational event involving discussions on solar energy presented by experts in the field, and What’s It Really Like, an initiative that connects undergraduates with professionals to explore career choices in the energy sector. In addition, there will be a talk about the University's initiative to be coal-free by 2020, an Energy Challenge, and tours.

Energy Week is planned and coordinated with the help of the Student Energy Board. Several of the events will be co-sponsored with GreeND, the Sustainability Minor, the Center for Social Concerns, and others. These include a documentary, a sustainability fair, and celebrations on Oct. 4 in honor of the Feast of St. Francis.

A complete calendar of events is posted on the ND Energy website and will be updated regularly as plans unfold for this milestone event.
