The Sustainability Café on Monday, February 17th will feature Dr. Beth Ellen Clark Joseph presenting “Performance assessment of ground source heat pump system at PRW Center.” The Café will be held in Center for Natural Sciences Room 112 at 4:00PM, in conjunction with the Environmental Seminar. The Spring 2014 Sustainability Café/Environmental Seminar series is focused on the concept of Campus Sustainability: Hiding in Plain Sight.
Beth Ellen Clark Joseph is professor of Physics and Astronomy, and a passionate advocate for renewable energy integration on the IC campus. Dr. Clark Joseph has led the efforts of student researchers to study how well the ground source heat pump system – aka the geothermal system - in the LEED Platinum-certified Peggy R. Williams Center has performed. That building’s geothermal system is the College’s first large-scale renewable energy system, but if Dr. Clark Joseph has her way, certainly not the last.
“Teachable edibles” – local, organic and/or seasonal snacks – for the Spring 2014 Sustainability Café series are being sponsored by Ithaca College Dining Services whose motto is “Sustainability – Healthy – Fresh.” Please bring your reusable mug and fill up at the nearest drinking fountain or provide your own beverage of choice.
This event is free and open to the public.
