The 13th Annual Notre Dame Energy Week

The 13th annual Notre Dame Energy Week will provide educational events focused on the latest topics and issues in sustainable energy. Coordinated by ND Energy’s Student Energy Board, Energy Week kicks off Monday, Sept. 9, and runs through Friday, Sept. 13, with various activities for students, faculty, staff, and the general public.

Central to this year’s event, there will be several talks throughout the week from experts in academia, industry, and government who will share their knowledge and experiences in developing and enforcing changes in the way energy is produced and used. Topics covered will include the proposed plan by researchers to create an energy corridor for the U.S.-Mexico border, how Notre Dame has exceeded its goal on de-carbonization, and the latest developments in modular nuclear power. Participants will also hear from a Native American woman her story on how she was able to change the lives of several other American Indians through renewable and alternate energy projects. And the final talk will be from the mayor of Albuquerque, New Mexico, who will share the city’s plans to transition to 100% renewable energy over the next four years.

Campus facility tours will be provided throughout the week to members of the Notre Dame community and will include the Power Plant, Stinson-Remick Solar Panels, and ND Energy’s Material Characterization Facility.

The week will conclude with ND for the Environment showcased during Football Fridays at the Eck Visitors Center. Football fans and visitors will learn about Notre Dame’s initiatives to address environmental issues from research on renewable energy to educating the next generation of environmental leaders to ensuring sound stewardship and efficiencies on Notre Dame’s campus. Visitors will also enjoy the fun, food, and festivities akin to Football Fridays at Notre Dame.
