The conversation about Bucknell's role in combatting climate change taken up at the recent Sustainability Symposium will continue Thursday, April 13, from noon to 12:50 p.m. in Room 112 of the Academic West Building (view campus map).

Professors Nate Siegel, mechanical engineering, and Peter Jansson, electrical & computer engineering, will explore regionally and economically appropriate options for Bucknell to move forward in its 2008 commitment to become carbon neutral by the year 2030. Their short presentation will be followed by a generous discussion period.

The event is free and open to the public. A pizza lunch will be provided.

Siegal is drawn to the challenge of converting the forms of energy in the environment to the forms of energy we use in our society. He teaches classes in fluid mechanics, heat transfer, thermodynamics, solar energy technologies and senior design.

Jansson has developed multiple electric power systems courses, renewable energy systems courses and sustainable design in engineering pedagogy. He is a registered professional engineer in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey who consults on all major aspects of electric power systems and renewable energy.

The event is part of the Renewable Energy Scholars Speakers Series, an initiative supported by the Bucknell Center for Sustainability & the Environment that seeks to educate the campus community on the benefits and challenges of the many alternatives to conventional fossil fuels.
