Is this a growing trend or just a fad?
These days you can’t turn on the television, log on to any social media website, or check your Twitter feed without seeing something about climate change, fossil fuels, renewable energy, sustainability, and energy efficiency. Regardless of your political orientation, the reality is that we all should have a goal to become more energy efficient.
As engineers, we all want to better the world by reducing our carbon footprint and energy consumption while providing resiliency in an ever-changing world. We work hard to integrate renewable technologies in our system designs, and try to address man-made and natural disasters.
