GE, Notre Dame, and a Greener Building
GE and Notre Dame engineering have enjoyed a long and productive relationship based on a strong track record of recruitment and support for new avenues of innovative research. When the University announced it would like to make the newest engineering building, Stinson-Remick Hall, more energy efficient, GE recognized the opportunity to advance the relationship and help the University strive for LEED certification using GE innovations. Working with the University architect's office and the Notre Dame Energy Center, GE provided a 200-panel solar unit which has been installed on the roof of the new building. Thanks to GE's generosity, students can study alternative energy production firsthand, while also monitoring trends in cost savings and emissions reduction.
