What do carbon accounting, geothermal, solar power, high performance buildings, and sustainable concrete have in common? They are all being implemented on campus and they are all part of the energy-efficient technologies and environmental remediation solutions being developed at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment. Come hear about the latest sustainable energy research and its practical applications for our campus and beyond. Following the talk, join us for a tour of the Andlinger Center and learn about its energy-saving features.

Meet the Facilitator:
Forrest Meggers is an associate professor of architecture and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University. His fields of knowledge include building systems design and integration; sustainable systems; renewable energy; radiant systems, desiccants, exergy analysis; geothermal energy; seasonal energy storage; building materials; thermodynamics and heat transfer; and heat pumps. Meggers founded and directs CHAOS (Cooling and Heating for Architecturally Optimized Systems) Lab, where he and his research team investigate alternative thermal paradigms to engage architecture and maximize performance. Meggers has several patents and founded the spinoff CHAOSENSE to develop his SMART sensor technology to improve thermostats.
