“After superstorm Sandy hammered New York, Fitzgerald and van Haaren — who originally built their solar panels for a campaign to raise awareness about green energy — decided to take their rig out of storage and to Rockaway Beach, which was hit hard by the storm. They settled their solar panels in a lot behind St. Gertrude’s church, which lost power during the storm.”
Jeffrey LeBlanc was selected to attend the 2013 ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit Student Program in Washington D.C. February 25-27th. The ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit is the premier event dedicated to transformative energy solutions. This unique event brings together thought leaders from academia, business, and government to discuss cutting-edge energy issues and facilitate relationships to help move technologies into the marketplace. The 70 graduate-level students selected to participate in the Student Program have the opportunity to attend the Summit, participate in additional student-focused panel sessions, and network with corporate recruiters. One opportunity is for graduate students to network with companies looking for new talent and for companies to meet the next generation of energy leaders.
