Applications due April 21st for the LoCal Renewable Energy Summer Research Program. The Summer Program is four weeks long with the first week an online course. The following three weeks are on-site in Denmark and include full-time course work combined with classroom lectures and seminars as well as field trips to relevant energy sites and facilities in Denmark. These site visits will provide participating students with real-world experience and intimate knowledge of the technological and social aspects of renewable energy production and supply at the local level. The participating LoCal-RE faculty include professors and program directors from California and Denmark as well as external professionals and researchers with proven experience in the field.
In addition to lectures and site visits, participants are expected to develop a problem-oriented research project that is completed as a group project. A final report will be produced by the student groups and will include analyses of the identified problem, possible solutions and suggested recommendations.
