Sustainability LLC research focuses on energy: assessing how much we use on campus, understanding how weather and climate affect consumption and supply, and utilizing technology to harness alternative energy sources. The research project for Sustainability is two-fold: 1) examining energy use on the NMT campus and 2) designing and implementing technology for using alternative energy. Research has included sensor deployment to find the critical areas of energy loss for buildings on campus, designing and building solar panel and wind turbine arrays, and launching weather balloons to study wind and solar potential for campus.
