SERVICE GOALS

Click each service goal below to view the current list of service-learning projects offered through our Partners In Education Network.

    1. Smart Grid Technologies – Projects that show how an electrical grid includes a variety of operational and energy measures including smart meters, smart appliances, renewable energy resources, and energy efficient resources
    2. Wind Technologies – Projects that show processes when the wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity by using wind turbines to convert the kinetic energy in the wind into mechanical power.
    3. Biomass Technologies – Projects that show processes that use organic material with stored sunlight in the form of chemical energy that can be extracted to derive fuels, chemicals, and power—such as plants, agricultural and forestry residues, organic components of garbage (municipal solid waste), and algae
    4. Batteries Technologies – Projects that show processes that supply electric power through cathodes, anodes and electrons that produces external circuit flows to deliver energy to external devices
    5. Fuel Cells Technologies – Projects that show processes where an electrochemical cell converts the chemical energy from a fuel into electricity
    6. LEED Certified Technologies – Projects that show how leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is one of the most popular green building certification programs by using a set of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of green buildings, homes, and neighborhoods that aims to help building owners and operators be environmentally responsible and use resources efficiently
    7. Solar Technologies – Projects that integrate technology that uses mirrors to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto receivers that collect solar energy and convert it to heat, which can then be used to produce electricity
